LAST MINUTE INFORMATION

Due to an unexpected student strike and the occupation of our Faculty, we are sorry to inform you that the conference venue has changed. It will take place at Hotel Campus UAB, which is located at the UAB Campus. We strongly recommend you to get off the train at Bellaterra station, one stop before Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
Please check the exact location of the Hotel Campus UAB at http://www.hotelcampusuab.com/en/location.php
When you get off the train at Bellaterra, after validating your ticket, go downstairs. Then turn right, and go straight along the road, until you find the Hotel (approximately 300 meters).
Some graduate students will be around to guide you to the venue.
Sorry for the inconveniences this sudden change can cause to you and hope to see you all tomorrow.
