RC 2016 will be held in Bologna, Italy and hosted by University of Bologna (Via Belmeloro 14, see this Google map link for details). The University of Bologna, founded in 1088, is the oldest university in the western world.

Bologna is famous for its porticoes. Dating back to the 12th century the porticoes were used to enlarge houses to support the growing University community. Today 350,000 people call Bologna home, of which 100,000 are students. Bologna is also famous for its food, surrounded by the famous food/wine regions of Parma, Modena and Tuscany.

Bologna is very accessible, being served by an international airport and one of the main hubs of the Italian railway system. Within easy access is Florence (0.5 hour), Milan (1 hour), Venice (1.5 hours), Rome (2 hours) and the ubiquitous Italian countryside of Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany.
