7. Update conference Barcelona

The latest news from the upcoming biennial.


We are getting closer and closer to Barcelona! The calls for papers, labs, films and young scholar awards closed in late January, bringing in a record 3800 proposals for panels and roundtables, 109 films submitted to the film programme and 57 proposals to the Labs stream. Convenors have now marked up their decisions, with over 2300 papers accepted (560 or 24% of these online) and 34 labs (5 online). The transfer process ends shortly, while the film selection will be announced in April.

Please note that the online day takes place the week before the in-person conference days, on Thursday, 18 July 2024. Online access will also include the keynote and plenaries during the face-to-face days (23-26 July) of the conference.

The organisers are finalising the daily timetable, trying to offer one that will not overly tax delegates in what's likely to be a hot Catalonian summer. We hope to publish the daily timetable next week; with the panel schedule to be announced with the opening of Early Bird Registration in early April. 

We strongly recommend looking for accommodation ASAP, as the conference takes place in Barcelona’s peak tourism season and accommodation may become scarce soon enough!
