The RPP11 Conference will be held in the historic building of the Convent de Sant Domènec in the city of Girona, Spain.

The monumental complex is declared a Historic-Artistic Monument of National Interest and currently houses part of the University of Girona.

The conference will take place in the Aula Magna Modest Prats and the pre-conference in Sala de Graus located in the Girona's Old Town «Barri Vell» (historic center). The area is characterized by a complex urban structure, with narrow streets and steep slopes. To make it easier to get to the Old Town campus on foot, you can use the lift in Pujada de Sant Martí (next to the Girona Provincial Council).

The conference dinner on the 19th of October will be at El Castell de Sant Gregori, in the outskirts of Girona (10 min drive).

We are looking forward to welcoming you here!
