We are sure that besides the superb technical program, you will enjoy the majestic city of Cairo, the capital of Egypt and the largest city in the Arab world. The Greater Cairo metropolitan area, with a population of around 22 million, is the largest urban agglomeration in Africa, the Arab world and the Middle East, and the sixth-largest in the world by population. Cairo is associated with ancient Egypt, as the Giza pyramid complex and the ancient cities of Memphis and Heliopolis are located in its geographical area. Cairo's historic center was awarded World Heritage Site-status in 1979. Cairo has the world's second-oldest institution of higher learning, Al-Azhar University. Cairo, like many other megacities, suffers from high levels of pollution and traffic. The recently constructed Cairo Metro (1987) is the oldest metro system in Africa, and ranks amongst the fifteen busiest in the world, with more than 3.5 million daily passenger rides.
Welcome to Cairo city where you will enjoy a unique mixture of Pharaonic, Coptic and Islamic Cultures. TWF-AC2023 will be an unforgettable event from the scientific, technical, social and entertainment points of view. Moreover, a visit to other historical sites such as Aswan will let you enjoy the city from where the stones used to build the Obelisks and Pharaonic Temples came. During your stay in Egypt, you will certainly get the message that many technological developments we enjoy today cannot be understood in isolation of the wonderful civilization, once flourished on this land several thousand years ago.
