Barcelona Meeting

The meeting will start on Monday afternoon (soon after lunch) 20/06 and will end on Wednesday (22/06) before lunch unless we have a considerable number of talks. In the latter case, we will end Wednesday afternoon.

This will be a hybrid meeting, please state below your form of attendance.

The venue will be the Institute of Space Sciences (ICE-CSIC) at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona link.

People can stay in Barcelona but then take either one of the two trains:

1- FGC: https://www.fgc.cat/en/fgc-network/l-barcelona-valles/ lines S2 or S6 (RECOMMENDED)

2- Rodalies: http://rodalies.gencat.cat/en/linies_estacions_i_trens/ line R7

There is plenty of accommodation in Barcelona, ideally the closer you get to the S2 line, the better it is.

Gracia is a nice neighbourhood. There are a lot of hotels/B&B/apartments close to the S2 stop of Provenca and Gracia (e.g. Hotel Astoria)

See a map of the S2 here: shorturl.at/vEKMN
