New information about the venue

The meeting will take place at CaixaForum, the new social and cultural center of Fundació “la Caixa” in Barcelona. The building is an early 20th-century factory that has been completely rebuilt and fully appointed with state-of-the-art technical equipment. Originally designed by the Catalan architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch in 1911, it is one of the jewels of modernista industrial architecture in Spain and has been listed as a Historical Monument of National Interest

CaixaForum is located close to the fountains and gardens of mount Montjuïc, one of Barcelona’s largest parks, and one of its most charming and interesting in terms of landscape gardening. CaixaForum offers a place where the visual arts, music, literature and thought alternate and intermingle, and where for a few days sciences, arts and letters will live together with even greater intensity.

back to the top How to get to CaixaForum CaixaForum (the venue) is located in the Marqués de Comillas avenue. Bus Lines 15 and 30 have stops in front of CaixaForum, however, if your hotel is not close to this lines, the best way is to go by public transport to Plaça Espanya and then just walk about 500-600 meters to CaixaForum following this map.

Dear EBBS members, colleagues and friends, The programme for the 35th annual meeting of the EBBS is now ready. The programme committee has selected six plenary lecturers and 14 symposia from among the many excellent proposals submitted by EBBS members and colleagues. The committee aimed to create a programme of high scientific quality, high level of interest for our community and a broad coverage of timely topics in the field of brain and behaviour. The rest of the programme will be madeup of voluntary contributions in the form of posters. The Local organising committee will assure that adequate time will be allocated for poster viewing and discussion. So we urge you to register as soon as possible and help us complete the programme by sending your contribution. The meeting will take place in less than one year at the magnificent CaixaForum in Barcelona, September 17-20, 2003. The EBBS committee and the Local Organising committee are looking forward to welcoming you to what promises to be an outstanding event.

Susan J. Sara, President of the EBBS
