Hola, amics! Què hi ha de nou?
Here we are in Barcelona. We arrived on Tuesday. It’s been remarkably hard to find time to even open my computer, so I won’t write much. I haven’t had much chance for sightseeing yet, as the conference just wrapped up yesterday. Shockingly, I have yet to see a speck of Gaudi. Tomorrow will hopefully change that.
For now, I’ll just share a few photos from the conference. Yes, that sounds really boring. Except that the conference was held in this building:
It didn’t look like much from the outside, but inside, it looked like this:
The talks were held in this little auditorium…
…which was full of antique tapestries.
We got to go outside to the portico/balcony surrounding the courtyard for coffee breaks…
…during which we could drink espresso and eat our fill of tasty pastries…
…and go for a stroll in the jasmine-scented rooftop garden, where we could admire the water lily pond and other attractive plants.
The poster sessions were also held outside on the balconies. (I forgot to get a photo with my own poster up, but you can see the setup.)
I have to say, of the conferences I’ve been to, this was by far the most pleasant venue. (The conference itself was also great, mind you, and my poster went pretty well. )
