The conference will be held at Lusófona University and at the beautiful Radisson Blue Hotel in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal and one of the most vibrant cities in the world, considered by many the city of light.

iSCSi has partnered up with the Radisson Hotel so our authors can have access to high-quality settings and services while attending the conference events at the university and at the hotel.


Lisbon, Portuguese Lisboa, city, port, capital of Portugal, and the center of the Lisbon metropolitan area. Located in western Portugal on the estuary of the Tagus (Tejo) River, it is the westernmost capital city in continental Europe and serves as the country’s chief port, largest city, and commercial, political, and tourist center. The city’s name is a modification of the ancient Olisipo (Ulyssipo), and its founding has been attributed to the legacy of Ulysses (Odysseus), the hero of Homer’s Odyssey, to Elisha, purported to have been a grandson of the Hebrew patriarch Abraham; and, more credibly, to Phoenician colonists. Lisbon owes its historical prominence to its natural harbor, one of the most beautiful in the world.

It is traditional for poets to refer to the entwining Tagus as Lisbon’s lover. The river is indeed an ever-present part of the city’s decor, and the official entrance to Lisbon is a broad marble staircase mounting from the water to the vast arcaded Commerce Square (Praça do Comércio). The three landward sides of the square are surrounded by uniform buildings dating from the 18th century. That formal Baroque-inspired layout is pierced by a monumental archway, built a century later, marking the entry north into the central city. In the middle of the square stands a bronze statue of King Joseph I on horseback, an important work by the sculptor Joachim Machado de Castro. Many government offices occupy the buildings that surround Commerce Square.

The magnificent Lusófuna University

iSCSi’23 conference will be partially held at University Lusófona, the leading Portuguese private university with nearly twenty thousand students across several domains of technology degrees.

The educational project of the Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias is the largest and most important education and training initiative that emerged from within the civil society in contemporary Portugal.

This project goes beyond the frontiers of our country and finds an echo in similar educational initiatives in Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and Mozambique. Universidade Lusófona, the institution, leads this wider educational project called “Ensino Lusófona”. More than 25,000 students attend the 22 education institutions that comprise the “Ensino Lusófona” in various Portuguese-speaking countries.

The iSCSi’23 opening and farewell event will occur at the Main Auditorium on the first day of the event. For conference lunches, dinners, and social events, the Radisson Hotel is the currently selected venue.  Schedule and agenda action points are still open, and further developments might occur.
