SEIT 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.

SEIT-2018 will be held in conjunction with the 8th International Conference
