Situated 80km south of Sicily, 284km east of Tunisia, and 333km north of Libya, Malta boasts an average of 300 days of sunshine a year. With sunshine being a key component of photosynthesis, Malta seemed like the ideal choice to hold the ENCAPP2016 conference.
The three islands that make up Malta are Malta, Gozo and Comino, with Malta being the largest and the cultural, commercial and administrative centre. The town of Saint Paul’s Bay will be the backdrop of ENCAPP2016. It has a rich history – according to the Bible, Saint Paul was shipwrecked on an island which many scholars have now identified as Malta; hence the name Saint Paul’s Bay. It lies in the northwest of the island of Malta, 16km from the capital city Valletta.
