Barcelona Conferences

 

Nestled on the coastal plain at the foot of the dramatic Collserola hills, Barcelona’s 2,000 years of rich history has been well preserved by its easily defensible position. If the city’s picturesque geographical landscape in itself is not its main draw, then its immaculately conserved artistic, religious and architectural treasures are. From some of the world’s greatest examples of gothic architecture in the Barcelona Cathedral, to Gaudi’s legendary creations including the Sagrada Família, to the more modern artistic offerings of Miró and Dalí, the city is one of Europe’s most colourful and most vibrant.

Beyond the visual arts, as one of Spain’s largest port towns, Barcelona has acted as a central hub for trade and industry since its inception. The resulting Catalonian culture that has thrived sees streets that are filled with some of the country’s finest culinary achievements – from tapas, Iberico, paella and sangria to the more modern developments in molecular gastronomy, for which the city is well known. There is respite from the city’s bustling streets in the long sandy beaches that bake beneath year-round Iberian sun, and the nearby must-see sites of Santa Maria de Montserrat, which perches atop Montserrat mountain, and the beautiful town of Sitges, a short drive down the coast.

About IAFOR Conferences

 

IAFOR welcomes thousands of academics to our conferences each year, which range in size from around 100 to in excess of 500 attendees. They do so because of the supportive and nurturing research environment, because of the unique networking opportunities, and because of the strength of the organization’s platform.

Our conferences are meticulously planned and programmed under the direction of prominent academics to ensure that they offer programs of the highest level, and are also quite unique in the way in which they are supported by some of the world’s leading academic institutions, including the University of London (UK), Virginia Tech (USA), NorthWestern University (USA), Monash University (Australia), Barcelona University (Spain), Waseda University (Japan), the National Institute of Education (Singapore), and The Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKSAR).

IAFOR’s credibility has enabled it to become a genuine pioneer, and has grown to be the most respected and trusted organization encouraging international, intercultural and interdisciplinary study. The organization is a formative influence in providing new research avenues and visionary development solutions necessary in our rapidly emerging globalized world.

We welcome you to engage in this expanding global academic community of individuals and network of institutions, and look forward to seeing you at one of our future events, as we look forward to breaking new ground, together.
