The Congress will be held at the Sant Joan de Déu Auditorium (Carrer de Santa Rosa, 39-57 08950 Esplugues de Llobregat, Barcelona), next to the Sant Joan de Déu (SJD) Hospital, within the SJD Campus. You can easily access the Campus by bus or other public transport: https://www.sjdhospitalbarcelona.org/en/how-find-us. You can download here a plan of the Campus to get to the Auditorium and to the Abba Garden Hotel, if you book a room there.
Friday night dinner
There will be a dinner on Friday night, 20h30, at the Alba Granados, C/ d’Enric Granados, 34, 08008. The ERN-ITHACA will invite everyone and you are free to come with a guest, at their own expense and within available seats – so please write to us before so that we can check with the restaurant.
If you cannot participate in the dinner, please tell us so via this quick form by writing to us (if you have not done so already). Also, if you would like a vegetarian menu, we would appreciate you telling us so via this same form or email.
Contrary to previous editions, there are no registration fees this year. Access to the event is free while accomodation and travel fees will be covered by participants themselves.
To maintain the Bischenberg spirit as much as possible, the entire hotel right next to the Sant Joan de Deu hospital has been saved to the EuroDysmorpho community.
The hotel is called Abba Garden Hotel. We encourage you to make your reservation there as soon as your abstract as been accepted. To book a room at the Abba Garden Hotel, please write to Tristan at firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know that you are part of EuroDysmorpho.
