Yesterday afternoon we were contacted by officials at the University of Barcelona to inform us that the venue we had reserved for next week’s conference and workshop won’t be usable. As you may have seen in the news, the political situation in Catalunya has led to pacific protests. Yesterday the Historic Building of the university, due to its centrality and iconic status, was taken over by students and protesters. Since this is where we planned to meet, university officials contacted us to relocate, as protests may disrupt our meeting. Accordingly, we will meet in the building adjacent to the venue we had originally chosen. The Workshop on Lenneberg on September 29 will also take place at the new location.

While the rooms will be less grandiose, we think that the meeting will be minimally affected by this change. We look forward to seeing you all.
