At the Barceló Sants the futuristic, cutting-edge design resembles a space station, allowing guests to imagine themselves on an intergalactic trip.

Located above Sants railway station and with direct access to the high-speed AVE and Barcelona's metro and local train links, this is the best-connected hotel in the city. It's just 500m from the Palacio de Congresos at the Fira de Barcelona trade fair venue and the Montjuïc hill, and only 15 minutes by train from El Prat international airport and 4 minutes by train from Plaza Catalunya. 

Accommodation at Barceló Sants: The booking link should be available next week. Watch this space (or Twitter).

We value the participation of each member of the community and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Attendees are expected to act with decorum showing respect and acceptance to other attendees throughout the conference, and at all conference events, whether officially sponsored by ElixirConf or not.

Be honest

Respect culture and custom

Consider your actions and act with integrity

Be accountable

If ever in doubt about a course of conduct, ask yourself:

Is it ethical?

Is it legal?

Will it reflect well on me as well as ElixirConf?

Would I want to read about it in the newspaper or on the web?

If the answer is “No” to any of these questions, don’t do it.

We want to thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly event for all.
