The 13th International Congress on Polymers in Concrete (ICPIC 2010) will be held at CS Madeira Atlantic Resort, in Funchal, capital of Madeira Island, Portugal, from 10 to 12 February, 2010.
Madeira Island is known as the Pearl of the Atlantic, the floating Garden due to the exuberant vegetation and rich flower variety. The island offers visitors a mild climate as well as subtropical vegetation, which transforms the islands into a blossoming garden all year round, and a landscape, beautiful and varied, which opens out into vast panoramas.
Madeira Island, because of its privileged geographical position and mountainous relief, has a surprisingly mild climate. Very mild average temperatures, 22ºC in the summer and 16ºC in the winter, and a moderate level of humidity, confer upon these islands exceptional subtropical features.
Madeira Island is 620 miles from the European continent, which is the equivalent of a 1 hour 30 minute flight from Lisbon. The island is daily connected from all European hubs, as Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Madrid, London or Amsterdam but also Toronto, New York or São Paulo.
