The Department of Computer, Control, and Management Engineering “Antonio Ruberti” (DIAG) is a center for research and education at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Formerly known as Department of Computer and System Sciences (DIS), it was established in 1983. In 2001, it was named after Antonio Ruberti, the eminent scholar who founded it.

Its premises are in the very center of the city, at walking distance from Termini Station, from the Coliseum and the Roman Imperial Fora.

Internationally renowned research groups in Computer Engineering, System Science, and Management Science are active at DIAG. Basic research is its main goal, with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research, on applications that stimulate basic research, and on technology transfer and dissemination of results.

It is one of the largest and most active departments of Sapienza University of Rome, which is a research-intensive Italian university, and the largest European one, with 115,000 students and more than 700 years of history.

Map

 

 

Directions by Train


There is a direct connection from Fiumicino Airport to Roma Termini Station (15 minutes walking from the conference Venue). Two different trains run throughout the day:

  • Leonardo Express, non-stop train (14€ one way ticket), runs every 30 minutes. The trip takes around half an hour;
  • Regional trains, which stop at each station (8€ one way ticket).

Timetables can be checked at http://www.trenitalia.com/tcom-en

 

Directions by Bus


There are bus services throughout the whole day both from Fiumicino Airport and from Ciampino Airport to Roma Termini Station (15 minutes walking from the conference venue). There are several companies which run this service. The ticket can be bought out from the arrival gate at both airports, and the price is around 5€ for a one way ticket. The time to reach the Train Station is around one hour from Fiumicino and around 45 minutes from Ciampino, but the traveling time can change significantly depending on the time of traveling and traffic conditions.

 

Directions by Taxi


There are several official Taxi companies in the city. Official taxis can be recognized because they have stickers of the City Standard on the doors, and can be found at specific spots at both Fiumicino and Ciampino Airport.

There are fixed fares for up to four people getting a taxi from the airports, towards any place within the Mura Aureliane  – the conference venue is at the very center of them:

  • From Fiumicino Airport: 48€
  • From Ciampino Airport: 30€

If more than four people are traveling on the taxi, or if the source/destination is different from the above, standard meter-based fares are applied.

While most taxi drivers are honest hard workers in the city, it could be suitable to ask for the fixed fare when getting on board.

There are some illegal taxi drivers who ask if you need a taxi when you leave the airport. If you just say “no thanks”, they will not bother you anymore.

 

Directions by Subway


The conference venue is 3 minutes away from Manzoni station, on the red (A) line. This line stops as well at Termini Station, so it could be a good opportunity to reduce the distance when arriving in the city. A one-way ticket costs 1.5€ and can be bought at automatic machines in any subway station, or at any tobacco shop/news stand in the city.
