The 11th Conference on Fast Field Cycling NMR Relaxometry will be held at the Conference Center “Le Benedettine”, a convent constructed by Benedictine nuns in 1393 on the southern bank of the River Arno, in the city of Pisa. The convent was largely restructured several times over the centuries; the façade, with flamboyant style windows, was redesigned by the architect Domenico Santini in 1850.
The Conference Center is within walking distance of the beautiful Square of Miracles, where the world-renowned Leaning Tower can be admired. The Conference Center can be reached by foot or by bus from the main railway station of Pisa.
