ISSCG-18 will take place in the auditorium of the Campus of Science and Technology of Parma University. The Campus is located in the southern bound of the city and well connected to downtown and railway station by two bus lines.

A visit to laboratories for crystal growth and epitaxy of the CNR-IMEM institute is planned in the course of the summer school.
