Registration and Abstract Submission


To make the workshop as interactive as possible, we have block-booked a large number of rooms in one hotel (H10 Marina) which is about 10 minutes walk from the venue. We encourage all participants to make use of this option - especially as it can be difficult to book accommodation in Barcelona in summer.

When registering, you will be offered 3 options, depending on whether you wish accommodation in the H10 Marina Barcelona for the duration of the meeting (check in 2 July 2019/ check out 5 July 2019):

Registration Fees (include admission, conference materials, lunches and coffee breaks):
