Alcalá University, Spain, headed by Rector Fernando Galván, has finalized all preparations as host institution for our next semi-annual meeting, scheduled for May 19-21, 2016. The University of Alcalá (UAH) is one of Europe’s oldest. Its origins can be traced as far back as the Studium Generale, or programme of university studies, that was instituted on 20 May 1293 under the protection of King Sancho IV de Castilla.
The UAH is a modern, medium-sized institution, recognized as a trend-setter in Europe and the American continent. The City of Alcalá de Henares is in the Autonomous Region of Madrid, 30 km from Madrid on the Madrid-Barcelona motorway and 20 km from Madrid’s international Adolfo Suarez-Barajas Airport.
