The MARTECH 2020 Conference will be held at Congress Centre on the IST Alameda campus in Lisbon, Portugal.
IST Alameda campus was built under the direction of Duarte Pacheco and was concluded in 1937 by Porfírio Pardal Monteiro, who creates the first autonomous campus of the Portuguese university system.
Located in Lisbon, IST Alameda Campus provides privileged access to Lisbon’s main points of interest. The public transport network allows quick travels to all points of the city.

How to Reach IST
From Lisbon Airport (Portela) to IST Alameda campus is an approximate 10 minutes drive. Lisbon Airport is very close to the city centre – it is located 7km from the centre - and there are different alternatives to get there, namely by Metro, by Aerobus, by city bus or by taxi. If you choose the Metro to go from the airport straight to IST, you have the red line (linha vermelha) and you should exit at Alameda or Saldanha station. It takes around 15 to 20 minutes and costs €1,50 plus €0,50 for the "viva viagem" rechargeable card.
Taxi or similar services
Taxis are more flexible and allow you to arrive at IST from any point in the city, but of course the tariff also increases according to the distance, traffic and time of day. The trip from the Airport to IST costs around 10 euros. It is possible to buy "taxi vouchers" at the airport from €20 to €25.
The whole city of Lisbon is covered by an urban transport network with convenient timetables and frequent buses. The following buses stop near IST Alameda campus:
