Barcelona Workshop on Distributive Issues and Questionnaire Studies

Barcelona, 9 December 2006

Hotel and Venue

You will be staying at the Residencia d'Investigadors (Residence for Researchers), which is down town very close to Las Ramblas

The address is: Carrer Hospital, 64
Telephone:  934438610 (from abroad should add the prefix for Spain, which is 34)

To go to the Residence for Researchers from the airport, please take a taxi and ask for a receipt. I will reimburse it.

This map indicates the location of the Residence (pointed by the arrow).

For your convenience, the Workshop will take place five minutes walking, down Las Ramblas. We are actually going to be in a building that belongs to the University Pompeu Fabra.
