The Environment is a prime concern at the Universidad Internacional de Andalucía (UNIA). For 2005, the University has established a programme of international conferences on the environment. The purpose of the conferences is to promote and improve international cooperation and scientific exchanges on the environment, thus promoting and facilitating scientific interaction between Andalusian and Latin American researchers and the international scientific community.
The conferences will be held over a three-day period at UNIA's head office, Sede Antonio Machado, in Baeza (Andalusia, Spain) and the working language will be in English. Sede Antonio Machado is in Plaza Santa Cruz, in the historic city centre, near the Cathedral. The head office has all the facilities required to host this series of conferences: computer room, library, classrooms, and meeting rooms. It also has a hall of residence where the guest speakers and those attending the conferences will be accommodated. Thus, social interaction and informal discussions will be facilitated.
Sede Antonio Machado offers the added advantage of being in the World Heritage city of Baeza (pop: 17,000).
The guest speakers, 15 in all, are highly prestigious researchers with broad experience in the field concerned. Attendance is restricted to 35 people, to complete a group of around 50, including the guest speakers. A certain number of places will be reserved for doctoral students and young PhDs. Participants are encouraged to exhibit a poster to communicate their research results. The organizers will select some of the submitted poster abstracts, so that their authors can present, in addition to the poster, a short talk (15-20 min.).
Applicants submitting a poster abstract will have preference in the selection procedure (if necessary), and participants without presenting a poster will be accepted only in case of available participation places when the application period is over.
All those attending the conferences will be accommodated in the residence hall at Sede Antonio Machado, where the conference will be held.
