TEAM goes to IGG45

This year, the main IGG event will be preceded by the Theoretical and Empirical Approaches to Microvariation workshop, to be held on February, 21 2019.
The main idea behind TEAM is to connect scholars working on Microvariation in different linguistic domains combining empirical and theoretical perspectives. Thus, we invite papers coming from all linguistic families and on all domains of grammar provided they formally analyze minimally homogeneous linguistic areas.

Travel Info

Padua is located in the centre of the Veneto Region, in the north-east of Italy, 40 km west of Venice and 90 km east of Verona. Its central position makes it very easy to reach by plane, car or train.

By Plane

The main international airports in the Veneto Region are:

A collective taxi service (shuttle or group buses) provided by Taxi Air Service (www.airservicepadova.it ) picks up travellers from the three airports and delivers them directly to their final destinations. The service should be booked in advance and can be paid for on board. The journey from Venice and Treviso airport takes about 40 minutes; from Verona it takes about 1h 20'.

From Venice and Treviso airports there is also a regular coach service managed by the SITA bus company. See the SITA bus company websits: www.fsbusitalia.it (the search engine is available in Italian only). Pick up points are just outside the arrivals areas at both airports, and bus tickets can be bought at the airports and normally not on board. The journey from both Venice and Treviso airports to Padua coach station takes about 1h 10'. The coach station in Padua is next to the main train station, where local buses and taxis are available.

From Valerio Catullo airport in Verona there is a coach service to Verona railway station (www.trenitalia.it). Trains run at least every hour and the journey takes from 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the train. Padua is one of intermediate stops of trains heading to Venice.

By Car

Two major motorways (autostrade) connect Padua to the main cities in Italy and Europe: the A4 Milano/Venezia motorway cuts across northern Italy from east to west, and the A27 Bologna/Padova motorway connects Padua with Bologna, Florence, Rome and the South of Italy. To plan your trip by car, you can visit: www.autostrade. For further information on the A4 Milano/Venezia motorway, visit www.autobspd.it.

The recommended motorway exit is Padova Est. From there, follow the signs for the city centre (centro città). Please note that you cannot enter the historic city centre by car. However, the railway and coach stations are just outside the city centre, and there is ample parking nearby.

By Train

Direct connections with the major cities in Italy are provided by the national train service Trenitalia (www.trenitalia.it). Milan and Florence are about 2 hours away from Padua by train, while Rome and Turin are about 4 hours away. From Padua, Venice can be reached in half an hour and Bologna in about an hour.
