  Dear Colleague, 

We are pleased to invite you to participate to the XXVII International Symposium on Multiparticle Dynamics which will be held in Frascati from 8th to 12th September 1997.
The Symposium is intended to be a meeting Forum for experimentalists and theorists with interest in the broad field of hadronic dynamics in elementary particle physics.
The Conference will cover: 

  • e+ e­, ep and pp, Collider Physics
  • Fixed target and heavy ion collisions
  • Soft hadronic interactions
  • Interplay between soft and hard physics
  • QCD in multiparticle production
  • Quarkonia production in hadronic interactions
  • High Energy Interactions from Cosmic Rays
  • The Symposium will take place in the new High Energy Building of the Frascati Laboratory. Participants will be accommodated in Hotel Villa Tuscolana, a 17th century Villa, designed by Architect Vanvitelli, recently restored with all modern facilities and located a few miles from the Laboratory, in the hills above Frascati. Trasportation to and from the Laboratory as well as to the Frascati railway station (with direct train connection to Rome) will be provided daily.

    Registration forms, schedules and information on where and how to reach the Laboratory will be found at: 

    Looking forward to see you in Frascati. Giulia Pancheri  for the Organizing Committee

    General Information:


    Frascati is located about 20Km SE of Rome. Participants will be accomodated in Hotel Villa Tuscolana, located near the town of Frascati. The villa was originally built in 1578 and restructured by L.Vanvitelli in 1740. It is equipped with modern facilities and, at 471m, is the highest of the old villa's on the hill above the town of Frascati. The cost per night per person inclusive of dinner and breakfast is 140.000 Lit. for a double room. Accommodation in single room will cost an additional 30.000 Lit. Present rate of exchange is 1600 Lit. per US$.

    How to get here:

    By Airplane
    From the Areoporto Leonardo da Vinci at Fiumicino take a taxi (only licensed yellow or white cabs are recommended) to Frascati (30 km , ~ 100.000 Lit. ~70$).
    You can also take the train from Fiumicino Airport to the "Roma Termini" railway station, and from there take the underground ("linea B") to the Roma Termini Station (see "By train").

    By Train
    From the Roma Termini railway station, take the train to Frascati (about 40 minutes): then take a taxi to Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati.
    You can take also the Underground ("linea A") from Roma Termini to Anagnina Station (every 10 min), then the bus to Frascati (every 1 hour).

    By Bus
    From Roma to Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati there is a service organised by ENEA and INFN valid only during the working days (from Monday to Friday). This is the Time Table and Route.

    By Car
    Take the ring highway "Grande Raccordo Anulare", Exit 21-22 (see map). Take the national road named Tuscolana in direction Frascati. Turn left (via Enrico Fermi) 300 mt. before downtown.

    Last News

    1. A bus will be available at Fiumicino airport at 3 p.m. to take Participants to Villa Tuscolana.
      Look for a grey-geen bus, SCHIAFFINI TRAVELS, carrying the Conference poster,
      and parked outside the International Arrivals
    2. A shuttle car will be available, in the afternoon, at Anagnina subway station (near the gas station on Via Tuscolana direction Frascati); the car will also stop at Frascati railway station waiting the train arrivals.
      The schedule will be as follows:
    3. Anagnina        Railway Station Frascati
      17:30 18:00
      18:30 19:00
      19:30 20:00
    4. Please, let us know if there are exceptional requests.
