Welcome to Évora and to EUCOP4. Today we will organize and ice-breaker at the main cloisters. Be sure to bring your badge in order to participate.
During the event, we will have the participation of Grupo Cantares de Évora Coral Etnográfico, a traditional Alentejo region choir. The choir will be wearing typical clothing showing etnographic features of the region from the 1950's, from various social levels and professions. The group has received the Medal of Merit of the city of Évora, class Gold, in 2004 when they have their 25th Anniversary.
Important information for the events at Sociedade Harmonia Eborense 17June at 10:30PM and 19 June 7PM
In order to enter the events in the Sociedade Harmonia Eborense in the evening of 17 June at 10:30PM and 19 June at 7PM YOU NEED a member card. All participants will receive one from the organization. The card allows you to have two free beers at the Events, one per each day.
The PYRN members will receive the cards at the dinner of the 17 June. All other members going to the get-together will get their card at the entrance after 10:30PM. If you’re only joining in the event in 19 June you can also collect the card at the registration desk in the 18 or 19 June.
In the 19 June, the Bar and Bistro event will include Fado music. Since there is a limited space inside the building, we might need to organize the event in two 30 min slots.
Looking forward for great time at the Sociedade Harmonia Eborense!

You should reserve and pay your transportation by editing your online registration, using your code and password. Be aware that regular buses and trains are also expected to work normally, but there may be peak numbers of EUCOP participants trying to book and this option could facilitate.
