Venue: TALC 2004 will be held at the University of Granada, founded in 1531,
under the initiative of the Emperor Carlos V, by means of a Papal Bull from
Pope Clemente VII. With 472 years of tradition, the University of Granada has
been an exceptional witness to history, as its influence in the city's social
and cultural environment grew until it was to become, over a period of almost
five centuries, an intellectual and cultural nucleus in Southern Spain in its
own right. The university centres and buildings are located in various places
in the urban area of Granada, giving the city its particular university style,
since of the 270,000 inhabitants of the capital, 60,000 are university
students. But Granada also fulfils other special requirements: historically it
is the last redoubt of Islam in Western Europe (the Alhambra and the
Generalife are samples of the splendour of this civilisation); Granada is also
a Renaissance city (the Hospital Real or the Cathedral are only two examples
of Granada's well-preserved historical heritage). To speak of Granada is,
therefore, to speak of an exceptional geography, midway between the warm sea
and the high mountains: 60 minutes by car from the province of Granada's
beaches, 75 minutes from Malaga, and 30 minutes from the Sierra Nevada ski
resort (at a height of 3,400 metres).
The Conference fee is € 80 (Students: € 30) if you register before 1 May,
2004, and € 90 after that date. Registration for pre-Conference workshops is €
50 (Students: € 25). Registration includes conference materials, welcome
reception (including a concert and drinks), coffee breaks and a night visit to
the Alhambra. Registration forms can be found in the conference official web
site at http://www.ugr.es/~talc6/. The registration form includes prices and
Information on accommodation and the Conference Gala Dinner is available at
the conference official web site (http://www.ugr.es/~talc6/).
