Local Information

Located in the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, Barcelona has been a traditional gateway, whose heritage has been enriched by Romans, Arabs and Christians, as well as the many other diverse cultures. The traces of this history and diversity can be perceived as you walk through the city; through its Gothic Quarter, built on the Roman ruins; through its art-nouveau Eixample district, presided over by Gaudí’s exuberant architecture, which at the same time reveals an ordered and rational urban layout. This diversity and harmony are also apparent in the character of the people of Barcelona, who are enterprising and hard-working, enjoy life and, in particular, have great civic pride and are lovers of culture.

These characteristics have made Barcelona into a first-class tourist destination and the ideal setting for meetings and congresses. This open, welcoming city, shed its skin and opened up to the sea in order to host the 1992 Olympic Games. This event made it possible to complete the city’s seafront, and improve significantly its range of services in the field of congresses, hotels and catering and culture. In just over two decades, Barcelona has completely transformed its range of facilities and attractions. It has done so by displaying a dynamic character and pioneering spirit, which are perfectly visible in its new urban and architectural layout. The city continues to enjoy spring-like climatic conditions, and offers the visitor its own unique lifestyle, which is particularly evocative and appealing. It perfectly combines the gentleness of the Mediterranean coast with the thrust and capacity for innovation of a young society. It is a unique combination on the European continent; a privileged geographical enclave whose inquiring yet serene population is already enjoying the Mediterranean metropolis of the 21st century.


ICASSP’2020 will be held at the Centre de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona (CCIB), http://www.ccib.es/. The center is located in the Diagonal Mar area, the newest section of Barcelona’s seafront and right next to the heart of the technology and business district (Barcelona 22@). The CCIB is unique in Europe for the impact and originality of its architecture, for the versatility of its column-free meeting halls and spaces and for the superb use it makes of the warm, natural Mediterranean light. With a surface area of 100,000 m2 which includes the Convention Centre building and the Fòrum Auditorium, the CCIB has ample space to welcome up to 15000 visitors and to house the most challenging association, corporate, institutional and artistic events with great success.


The CCIB can be reached by Metro (Line L4, “El Maresme-Forum” station), Tram (Line T4, “El Maresme” and “Forum” stops) and Bus (lines 7, H16). A map of the area is available here .
