Conference venue

SPDECE2012 will take place at Sede Ciudad de Alicante (University Venue in Alicante). This building is a neoclassical palace of the late nineteenth century, and since its origin is linked to the educational and economic activity of Alicante. It has evolved to adapt to new requirements, while retaining its basic structural elements, so it can be considered today a landmark because of its age, location and overlapping with urban history of the evolution of Alicante.
