MOBIlearn The wings of learning




Social events


The MLEARN2004 Conference Committee has organised a serie of Social events in order to facilitate the networking and discussions among participants, who have common interests in developing opportunities, systems and contents for learning with mobile and wireless devices and networks. I hope that you'll appreciate these events as a way to share ideas and experiences on Mobile and Ambient Learning.


MLEARN2004 Social events, which can be booked through the Conference registration form, are:


Sunday 4 July afternoon: pre-conference "Rome Eternal City" tour (Colosseo, Fori Imperiali, Altare della Patria, Piazza Venezia: 3-hour tour).
Founded in the mid 8th century BC as a small village of huts, Rome soon grew as a city and spread over the famous seven hills. By the end of the 1st century AD, in the heyday of the Roman Empire, it was a metropolis of 1.5 million people. Today, monumental ruins and imposing buildings remain to reveal not only the glorious past of the 'Eternal City', but also its political, religious, and social organization. The tour will start from the Capitol, where a terrace overlooking the Palatine and Roman Forum will offer one of the most magnificent views in Rome, and will continue down to the Forum, up to the imperial palaces on the Palatine hill, through the arches dedicated to the emperors Septimius Severus, Titus and Constantine, to the Colosseum.
Cost: 30 euro per person

Rome Eternal City


Sunday 4 July evening: pre-conference welcome cocktail in Rome.
The most exclusive and central Residence in Rome is the result of the restoration performed in 1978 of an imposing and quiet baroque Convent located in the most ancient heart of the city.
Recently restored. Vast and harmonious spaces where the elegance of paintings and tapestries has been stylishly combined with a remarkable collection of contemporary art. With its quiet inner garden and the terrace hanging from the roofs and domes, Residenza di Ripetta offers the traveller the silent stay he deserves in the very heart of Rome.
