The city

The SBESC'2014 will take place in Manaus city, capital of the State of Amazonas in northern of Brazil.

Manaus is a very nice (and somehow different) place to visit. It is located in the middle of the Amazon rainforest, where the access to the city is basically by boat or airplane. This isolation helped preserve both the nature as well as the culture of the city. The culture of Manaus preserves the habits of Native Brazilian tribes. The city is the main entrance to visit the fauna and flora of the Brazilian Amazon. Few places in the World afford such a variety of plants, trees, birds, insects, fishes, etc. See the nature is the main touristic attraction. Currently its main economic engine is the Industrial Pole of Manaus, the famous Free Economic Zone, where its manufactures include electronics (smartphones, TV, radio, air conditioner, freezers, etc), motorcycles, computers, game consoles, and chemical products. The city's population is almost 2 million people in 2013, which is the most populous in the Brazilian Amazon area and the 7th most populous in the country. The city will be one of the host cities of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
