As a token of the Portuguese hospitality, we prepared a
superb program for the social events.
A relaxing welcome reception in the evening of Day 1,
29th June (DSN Workshops Day) prepares the souls for the
following three days.
The excursion on Day 3, 1st July, will bring you to
places you will never forget (16h00-19h00). Starting with
Sintra, with its mystic palaces and gardens, located in Mons
Lunae, the ancient Roman name for the mountain that baptized the
town. Then, we move on to
Adega Regional de Colares, home to one of the greatest yet
not so well-known Portuguese wines, and yes, it's going to be a
relaxing DSN Session - Wine Tasting, where it is not forbidden
to talk bout dependability and security! After resting body and
soul, we head toward
Cabo da Roca, an imposing promontory that marks the west end
of continental Europe. The daring adventurers will receive a
hand-written certificate of presence.
Time to go back to hotels, and after a refreshing pause,
we finish with the banquet and show (20:30-24:00), at
Casino Estoril, the largest in Europe. It is renowned for
its music hall shows, like the one that will accompany our
dinner, featuring trapezists, mimics, musicians, singers and
dancers, in a high quality choreography.

Despite the quality of the program, we made every effort
to maximize attendance, by keeping the extra ticket prices to
the possible minimum. Accompanying persons and students can purchase
tickets, please see instructions in
