Barcelona is a popular destination, and the coordinators and organizer may not be able to accept all proposals if the number of submissions exceeds logistic capacities, although it is our hope to able to accommodate all feasible and well-presented academic proposals on the history of Iberia and the Iberian world that are submitted on time. Established members and their graduate students will be given priority.
