* MET's sister associations are listed here. For the Milan sessions, sister association status will also be granted to staff and students of the IULM and the SSML Carlo Bo, and to the METM17 event supporters (AITI, A.N.I.T.I., ASSOINTERPRETI, StradeLab, TradInFo and Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore).

** Directions to IULM: Take the Milan Metro to Romolo (Line 2). Use the IULM exit; take the road in front of you (Via Filargo), which runs alongside the railway line (on your right). Continue walking alongside the railway line until just before you reach a roundabout; you will see a small side entrance to the IULM on your left. Alternatively, you can continue until the roundabout and turn left into Via Carlo Bo; the main entrance to IULM 1 (the main building) is almost immediately on your left.
