RE’13 will take place at PUC-Rio, Brazil. A map is available with some relevant spots around our campus, including the nearby bus stops and lines. A more detailed map of the campus will be available in the conference program.

In the words of our International Cooperation Program Coordination, CCCI, “PUC-RIO is located in Gávea, a charming neighborhood near the forest and beaches of the Zona Sul area of Rio de Janeiro. Its campus is beautifully situated within a tropical forest, surrounded by lush trees and with a small stream running through it. Visitors and students can often see small monkeys and squirrels jumping among the trees.
