The Venue

The conference will be held at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - Barcelona Tech (commonly known as UPC), the largest engineering university in Catalonia — also encompassing other disciplines such as mathematics and architecture — with more than 35000 students and 5000 staff members. The connection of UPC to Plone is huge: UPC has been using Plone since 2006 and has more than 500 Plone-based websites and intranets (schools, institutes, departments and research groups), including the main institutional website since 2009. The UPC also developed a Plone-based multipurpose web generator (Genweb) and put it at the disposal of the university community that allows anyone to create a website easily with the institution's look and feel.

The UPC has several locations thorough Catalonia (Barcelona, Manresa, Terrassa, Castelldefels, Sant Cugat del Vallés, Igualada, Mataró and Vilanova i la Geltrú). We will celebrate the conference at the main Barcelona campus, the Campus Nord.


The UPC Campus Nord is located in a residential area of Barcelona, the upscale Pedralbes neighborhood. There are all kinds of services and infrastructure available, as can be expected from a lively university environment, so you'll find a good choice of bars, restaurants and shops within walking distance.
