Getting From There to Here

The WOCMES team has compiled all the information you will need to arrive at this year’s venue, the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, safely, quickly and without worry. As the university campus is not located in the city center, it is important to be aware of all of your transportation options before you arrive in Barcelona.

Information on how best to navigate Barcelona’s sprawling public transportation system can now be viewed on the official WOCMES Web site.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ATTENDEES WILL NEED TO KEEP THEIR TRAIN TICKET TO EXIT THE STATION UPON ARRIVING AT THE CONGRESS VENUE.

Time Off

Balcon

While this year’s WOCMES Barcelona 2010 provides no shortage of compelling panels and special cultural events, participants are encouraged to venture into this year’s host city to explore one of the Mediterranean’s most vibrant and beautiful cities. To help out-of-towners make the most of their free time in Barcelona, WOCMES has compiled opportunities for day tours of the city and beyond. Tours can now be arranged online or on-site. There will also be Barcelona Tourism table located at the Congress venue to answer any questions you might have about exploring Barcelona.

Tech Specifications

This year’s WOCMES venue will provide computer and projection access to all panel and roundtable participants during their presentations. However, to guarantee technical compatibility during each event, it is suggested that participants travel to Barcelona with their own equipment as obstacles such as differing operating systems and dated versions of programs may affect one’s ability to display their presentation. For specific queries, please contact WOCMES at wocmes@iemed.org.

A New WOCMES.ORG

In the coming weeks, we will be unveiling a new look for the official WOCMES Web site, including a front page that will act as a central location for the latest in Congress news, including changes to the official schedule and spotlighted panels and events. Before and during WOCMES the site will serve as the most dependable source for the latest breaking news so be sure to bookmark the site to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
