The conference will take place at "La Hospedería del Colegio Arzobispo Fonseca", conveniently located in the old part of the city of Salamanca. The Hospedería was built in the 18th century as a complement to the residence of the archbishop Fonseca. It has been completely renewed and reopened as a modern conference center while retaining the atmosphere of the old University of Salamanca.

Hospedería del Colegio Fonseca

The University Residence of Fonseca (Hospedería Fonseca) is a 16th century palace that was used as a University student accommodation for Irish novices who came to Salamanca to study Theology at that time. For that reason the place is also known as the Irish College.

Nowadays it is a modern multipurpose building which serves for two purposes: on one hand it is the official USAL residence for visiting scholars. On the other hand it contains some administrative units of the USAL, such as the Extraordinary Courses Service, the Office of Cultural Activities, the Ibero-­‐American Institute, and the General Foundation.

It is equipped with 18 institutional spaces for conferences and meetings. Two auditoriums, ten rooms, one exhibition room and five multipurpose spaces comprise an offer to cover any professional need of an event.

It also has a cafeteria and a restaurant. The accommodation in the building is suitable for people with mobility impairments.
