Dear Colleagues and friends,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend this prestigious meeting in a beautiful city and country. Based on the success of previous conferences, the ESDAR 2018 aims to maintain and promote the international cooperation among researchers, organizing stimulating lectures, challenging workshops and longer sessions for oral communications, offering both senior and young researchers the opportunity to present their work. The conference venue will include ample space for poster sessions and an exhibition area for sponsors and other members of the industry. We are confident that ESDAR 2018 will be a high scientific quality conference in a monumental city, with good climate and gastronomic delights like tapas!

Congress Venue: Rectorate of the University of Cordoba


Rectorate building of the University of Cordoba

Avda Medina Azahara 5, 14071, Cordoba, Spain

The Rectorate, an impressive neo-Mudejar building, is one of the city’s most emblematic structures. The local authority commissioned the building in 1914 as a place to house the former Veterinary Faculty, and it is considered by art historians to be Córdoba’s finest example of the regionalist style. During refurbishment of the new Rectorate, workers unearthed the Roman amphitheater of Corduba, dating back to the first century B.C. and believed to be the largest in the whole of Roman Hispania. The renovation of the building enabled the central services of the University of Cordoba to be equipped with modern facilities featuring the latest technology.
