Since Wednesday and Thursday have morning and afternoon activities, and there are no restaurants close to the building, lunch will be catered both days. Registration to the meeting pays for these two lunches as well as for the provisions for the morning and afternoon coffee breaks. The Conference banquet on Friday will be paid for separately as indicated in the Registration form. For the other meals on Friday and Saturday, we recommend trying the local, varied, delicious gastronomy.
Seville Airport is conveniently located, 7 kilometres from central Seville. There are few scheduled international flights. Cheap charter flights to Seville are scarce. For more economical flights, flying into Jerez de la Frontera and Málaga, and taking the bus to Seville is another option.
Seville has good rail links to Barcelona, Cádiz, Córdoba,
Jaén, Jerez de la Frontera, Granada, Huelva, Madrid, Málaga,
Ronda and Valencia. The fast-track AVE railway line provides a 2h 30min
connection to Madrid every hour.
