Given the current uncertainties associated with Covid-19 we have prepared a two steps procedure where first each participant has to declare his/her intention to attend in person and then confirm it by June 20. This can help us to estimate the number of people willing to come to Granada and making final decisions and arrangements.


  • Intention to participate should be done by using this web form. Please do it as soon as you have decided to come if circumstances allow it. Even if the deadline for room reservation is over, in the same form you can send us a reservation request and then we will check the availability in the university residences, confirming it afterwards.
  • Confirmation of the participation should be done by June 20. Previous to that date there is no cost associated with the cancellation of the reservation. If you confirm your reservation by that date, then you should pay for half of the total amount (either by bank transfer or credit card). A form will be available for confirmation and payment.
  • If you declare your intention to come and finally decide not to do it, please inform us as soon as possible by sending a message to
  • The basic conference organization is virtual and registration will entitle for online attendance.
  • The idea behind the physical presence in Granada is to reinforce the interchange of ideas and social interaction.
  • Some social activities will be scheduled for people coming to Granada, but these will depend on the number of people and Covid-19 conditions.
  • The costs associated with this participation will be splitted between physical participants (apart from registration), though we are working in order to keep this amount very low.
