If It’s August, This Must Be Spain

Finally the organisers sent us the first information e-mail with regard to INEM’s 2017 conference. I could hardly wait for these instructions. This is going to be an exciting event and I am eager for August to come. The registration is now open – everything is carried out on-line. This is very modern, I must say. According to the Preliminary Programme, we have lots thought-provoking lectures and interesting panelists – lots of the faces familiar from Rotterdam. We are going to have a very heavy schedule: all the days start early in the morning and last until the evening. Yes, even 10-hour-long, busy workdays. 5930761917_233493219c_b

The conference is held at the beautiful Palacio Miramar, a palace built for the Spanish Royal Family at the end of the 19th century. We have the opportunity to continue the discussions even during the lunches, as the conference lunches are served right at the palace. This is not the only option, as there is a refectory in the building itself and there are a couple of restaurants within walking distance – however, I will opt for the official conference lunches in order to spend lunchtime in a good company. Moreover, my temporary residence is also within walking distance from the Palace. I think I will fly Iberia through Madrid. This is going to be a nice journey and an exciting intellectual adventure, of course.
