Catania can be easily reached by air
The airport of Catania is very close to the centre of the town (approximately 4 km). You can reach
the centre by bus (Alibus, 0.8€) or by taxi. In this case, we suggest you to avoid to catch a taxi
outside of the airport and instead to phone to Social Taxi (+39.095.330966) which ensures a
transportation to the centre of the town for 20€.

We remember that on Saturday 19th of April there will be a workshop on "Quantitative methodologies
for Risk Assessment" with the aim of opening a discussion on the perspectives of applications to
financial rating and, more in general, to credit risk modelling and measurement, of the methodologies
considered in COST Action IC0602, with special emphasis to Information and Communication Technology.
In this meeting will participate representatives from Banca dItalia (Central Banck in Italy), Centrale
dei Bilanci (the main rating institution in Italy) and experts of several Italian Banks, including Unicredit,
the second largest bank in Europe. All participants to the meeting of COST Action are encouraged to
take actively part to this workshop.
