2023 9th International Conference on e-Society, e-Learning and e-Technologies

Interesting Facts

 

 

* Portsmouth is easily accessible through national and international sea, air, rail, and road connections. Travelling around the city is also very easy and most sites are in walking distance. We also have an efficient public bus service and ample taxi services.

* Portsmouth and Southsea Station (the main station for Portsmouth) and Portsmouth Harbour Station are both within 10 minutes walking distance of the Faculty of Business and Law where the Conference will be located. However, we would recommend travelling to Portsmouth and Southsea Station.

*Located in the historic waterfront city centre of Portsmouth on the south coast of England, and with a rich maritime history, Portsmouth is an attractive, friendly and vibrant city. It is compact enough so that everything is in easy reach, but large and cosmopolitan enough to offer a wide array of activities from cultural pursuits to shopping, entertainment and sport.
