ECEM 2019 will be in Alicante, Spain (August 18-22)

Alicante, with more than 320,000 inhabitants, is a traditional maritime city located on the Mediterranean Sea. The old part of the city encompasses
Postiguet Beach, two marinas and a large commercial port. The city embraces
an imposing 166-meter rocky hill right next to the sea, Monte Benacantil,
crowned by The Castillo de Santa Bárbara (Santa Barbara Castle). This is one of the largest castles on the Mediterranean, and the conference dinner will take place within its premises, with breathtaking views over the city and the Mediterranean. The slopes of Monte Benacantil surround the old city of Alicante (El Barrio) like a shield. El Barrio is well known for its vibrant nightlife.

The local organizing team has secured a large block of hotel rooms at
special discounted rates for the conference. Specific hotel information will be made available on the website in March 2019. Lodging in the area is
reasonably priced, but accommodations can become limited in the high summer
season. We advise early hotel reservation.

On Behalf of the Local Organization Committee

Please share this information with your colleagues. We look forward to
welcoming you to Alicante!

Luis Martinez-Otero (chair), Albert Compte, and Susana Martinez-Conde
