In a few weeks time, I'll be organizing a CECAM workshop on "Spin states in biochemistry and inorganic chemistry", with an impressive line-up of speakers: Larry Que, Jeremy Harvey, Per Siegbahn, John Perdew, Kara Bren, Martin Kaupp, Ulf Ryde, Eckard Münck, Kristine Pierloot, Miquel Costas, Bob Scheidt, Markus Reiher, etc. etc. See:
(and note, it will be highlighted in Nature Chemistry)
I have prepared a Google Maps with the most important places for the workshop, and interesting things to visit in Zaragoza:
The hotel for the participants is the *****-star hotel Palafox in the city center:
The workshop will be held at the Z-Cam center (Calle Mariano Esquillor s/n, Edificio I+D, 50018 Zaragoza), and transportation will be arranged for the participants from the hotel to Z-Cam in the morning and evening.
There is a fast train connecting Barcelona and Zaragoza, for which it is best to reserve a place through the online system of Renfe (Spanish train company):
There is a train connecting Barcelona Airport with Sants station from which the fast train (AVE) leaves:
Airport - Sants train schedule (select Aeroport as Departure and Barcelona-Sants as Destination)
Right now we're working on the last preparations, and I was looking back for some pictures I took on a previous visit. Here they are:
