A special issue of refereed full papers of the Journal of the Brazilian Computer Society (published by Springer-Verlag) was published in volume 18, Issue 2, 2012.

Where to stay in Rio before or after the workshop

It might be a little harder than usual to find hotels in Rio around the time of the workshop, because the workshop is right after the long weekend of November 15th (a holiday in Brazil). We sugest you try internet hotel booking services, such as Booking.com and Hotel.com.br.

Getting to Itaipava

We recommend you plan to arrive in Rio at or before November 15th.

Bus transportation will be available from UFRJ(Campus Fundao, by NCE) on November 16th. The bus will arrive at UFRJ at 8:15am, and the bus will leave at 9:00am sharp. On the way back, the bus should arrive at UFRJ on November 19th around noon. If you are coming to UFRJ by a regular bus, say, bus number 485, from Copacabana, you should get off the bus at the " CT stop".

The two-way trip will cost 20,00 reais, and you must inform us if you intend to take this bus or not, so we can make proper arrangements.

Since the workshop will take place at a millitary installation, you must either take this bus with the whole group, or we must leave your name and approximate time of your arrival at their gate. Please inform us about your decision regarding transportation by sending an e-mail to lawcliques@cos.ufrj.br

Extra Guests

Please remember this is not a regular hotel, and it is extremely difficult to host extra guests. There are no closeby accomodations either.
