How to get to the Blue Cube

The campus of the Universitat Politècnica de València spans 1300 m by 400 m east of the Valencia access from the Barcelona highway. The conference will take place in the conference hall of the Blue Cube of the CPI, which is at the south east corner of campus, next to the crossing of Avenida de los Naranjos and Calle del Ingeniero Fausto Elio. The CPI building has more than 20 entries, and it is impossible to post signs pointing to geoENV2012. The Blue Cube appears, in the University maps, as building 8B, once there you can either go to the basement and look for access N and take the elevator to the 3rd floor, or go up, take the transparent lift to the 3rd floor, exit to your right and walk to the last cube.The CPI is a very prominent building that looks like a big brown shoe box (without windows) with cubes of different colors on top.
