ANT 2018 will be held in Porto, Portugal. Porto is the second-largest 
city in Portugal after Lisbon and one of the major urban areas of the 
Iberian Peninsula. Porto is also called the Invicta because during the 
19th century Portuguese civil war, the city withstood a siege of over a 
year.The urban area of Porto, which extends beyond the administrative 
limits of the city, has a population of 2.1 million in an area of 389 
km2 (150 sq mi), making it the second-largest urban area in Portugal. It 
is recognized as a gamma- level global city by the Globalization and 
World Cities (GaWC) Study Group, the only Portuguese city besides Lisbon 
to be recognised as a global city.

Located along the Douro river estuary in Northern Portugal, Porto is one 
of the oldest European centres, and its historical core was proclaimed a 
World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. The western part of its urban 
area extends to the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. Its settlement 
dates back many centuries, when it was an outpost of the Roman Empire. 
One of Portugal's internationally famous exports, port wine, is named 
after Porto, since the metropolitan area, and in particular the cellars 
of Vila Nova de Gaia, were responsible for the packaging, transport and 
export of the fortified wine. In 2014 and 2017, Porto was elected The 
Best European Destination by the Best European Destinations Agency.

ANT-2018 will be held in conjunction with the 8th International 
Conference on Sustainable Energy Information Technology (SEIT,
