Venue



University of Cordoba (see facts & figures)

University Main Building. Avd. Medina Azahara, 5.

14071 C├│rdoba. SPAIN



The University Main Building is situated close to the center of the town. It was built throughout a difficult period of the Spanish history being finished early in the 1940s. This stately structure in a sort of Mudejar style was formerly occupied by the Faculty of Veterinary since 1941 to 1997. Nowadays, the building has been recently modernised for housing the Rector┬┤s Office and central administration services.



The building, specially its main auditorium, is also the venue for many academic ceremonies and congresses. We are grateful to University of Cordoba for allowing the use of the Auditorium for this Conference. Download some additional details about the Venue
