The conference will take place at Hotel Cascais Miragem, which is located between Cascais and Estoril, 30 kms from the Lisbon Airport. The best way to get to Estoril from the Airport is by taxi, taking approximately 25 minutes. Alternatively, you can use public transportation that will take approximately 1h30m.
Portela Airport (Lisbon) is an international gateway with flights departing and arriving from almost anywhere in the world and is only 7 km away from the centre of Lisbon and 30 km from Estoril. Major companies such as AirFrance, Air Luxor, Alitalia, Air Berlin, British Airways, Continental, Iberia, Lufthansa, TAAG, TAVC, TAP Air Portugal, among others, fly to Boston, New York, Toronto, Luanda, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Johannesburg, Caracas, and most European capitals and intercontinental hubs (London, Amsterdam, Zurich, Paris, etc.).
The easiest way to get to Estoril from the Airport is by taxi, taking approximately 25 minutes. Taxi ranks are situated at the arrivals and departures curb-side. Taxis are affordable, with a typical ride from the airport to the conference hotels between 45€ and 50€.
After exiting the airport you can take bus number 44 (costs 1,50€) to Cais do Sodré train station, or you can take the Aerobus (costs 3,50€, and has its own bus stop). In both buses, tickets can be purchased in the bus and exact change is not required. Both buses take approximately 30 minutes to get to Cais do Sodré train station (in both buses that is their last stop).
On Cais do Sodré when taking the train be careful to check if the train you are taking stops in the station most nearby to your hotel (there is a billboard located on the floor below where the trains stop (entrance to the subway) that displays the train schedule, the the train line where each train departs from, and the station names where they stop). Some trains don't go all the way to Estoril. The train ticket is 1,80€ and can be purchased in the 'self-service' ticket machines or in the ticket offices.
The train ride to Estoril is very beautiful as the route follows the river/sea most of the time. The train ride from Cais do Sodré to Cascais takes approximately 40 min. More information about the train here.
