The location of the Workshop is the Polo Didattico building ("Edificio 19", entrance G, first floor, room 11) placed in the University campus where there are several Faculties, such as Economics, Engineering, and Humanities.
The Polo Didattico is located at viale delle Scienze, about 15-20 minutes walk from the central railway station and the edge of the historical and tourist centre of Palermo. Recently, some statistical/mathematical events were organized: XXIX AMASES - Associazione Matematica per le Scienze Economiche e Sociali (2005, about 400 participants); Artificial Economics (2007, 80 participants); XI Workshop on Quantitative Finance (2010, 150 participants). The EUA (European University Association) took place on October 2010 with 300 participants.
There are several modern air-conditioned auditoria in this venue: 10 auditoria of two different sizes are available, 160 and 200 seats. There is space for coffee breaks, (working) lunches, meetings of the executive committee, poster sessions, and also for the short course (a lab room for 30 people is available within the building).
