Venue


The conference will be virtual. Details and instructions will be given shortly.

We have reserved a meeting room to follow the conference on-site if some participants desire to come to Granada and Covid-19 situation allows it. The meeting room is in the Carmen de la Victoria . The Carmen de la Victoria is located in the Albayzín Hill, in the Arab quarter Axaris, which has been full of orchards, gardens and cármenes since the Arabs inhabited Granada. It has one of the best views of the Alhambra Palaces. Some rooms are also available for people that want to stay there and others in another residence, Corrala de Santiago located in the historical quarter of ‘El Realejo’ and at a walking distance of the Carmen de la Victoria.

Given the current uncertainties associated with Covid-19 we have prepared a two steps procedure where first each participant has to declare his/her intention to attend in person and then confirm it by (May 31st). This can help us to estimate the number of people willing to come to Granada and making final decisions and arrangements.

Conditions

  • Intention to participate and room reservation should be done by using this web form. Even if the deadline for room reservation is over, you can send us a reservation request and then we will check the availability in the university residences.
  • Confirmation of the participation should be done by May 31st.
  • The basic conference organization is virtual and registration will entitle for online attendance.
  • The idea behind the physical presence in Granada is to reinforce the interchange of ideas and social interaction.
  • Some social activities will be scheduled for people coming to Granada, but these will depend on the number of people and Covid-19 conditions.
  • The costs associated with this participation will be splitted between physical participants (apart from registration), though we are working in order to keep this amount very low.
