The venue


The conference will be held in TECNUN (Ibaeta), at San Sebastian. The city is one of the most attractive places in Spain (Arrival San Sebastian by plane) . Situated in the bay of Biscay, the city is surrounded by beaches and mountains, and offers some of the best fine cuisine in Europe. Delight in famous restaurants or try ‘pintxos’, appetizer-sized dishes delicately prepared in the city’s many bars and pubs. With its welcoming atmosphere, the city attracts plenty of visitors every summer.

You can also visit many traditional and lovely villages like Hondarribia or Getaria, not far from San Sebastian whose green hills, beaches and historic buildings will provide you with unforgettable memories!

For art lovers, art in open spaces, accessible to all, is another of the representative characteristics of San Sebastian. At the end of Ondarreta Beach (west end of San Sebastian) el Peine del Viento made by the sculptor Eduardo Chillida and architect Luis Peña Ganchegui offers a delightful view of the merger between art and landscape. In the Paseo Nuevo, challenging the power of the tides stands the sculpture Construcción Vacía by artist Jorge Oteiza. The play, which was awarded at the Biennale of Sao Paulo half a century ago, is nowadays a landmark in the contemporary art world, a real treasure handy to everyone.

The conference is going to be held in the School of Engineers of the University of Navarra (TECNUN), situated in the Ibaeta Campus.

Paseo de Manuel Lardizabal, Nº 13
