On behalf of the Spanish Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (SENPE), the Local Organising Committee has the pleasure and privilege to welcome you to the 34th Congress of the European Society of Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN) which will be held in Spain in the historic and cultural city of Barcelona from the 8th to the 11th of September 2012.

In harmony with the motto of the Congress “Achieving goals in nutrition”, the Congress will address the practical aspects of nutritional treatment, defining goals in nutrition care and presenting the advances in the last years. We count with renowned international faculties to join Barcelona for discussing the most recent data in their field of expertise.

Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, with more than one million six hundred thousand residents, is located in the north east of Spain. The city is safe and friendly, and it’s a nice place to go sightseeing and visiting wonderful museums.

The Congress will take place in the “International Convention Centre of Barcelona” (CCIB), located in The Diagonal Mar Area, a new window to the sea. The CCIB is conveniently located, with more than 4,800 hotel rooms and restaurants in walking distance, and within less than 10 minutes of the centre of the old city by a direct subway line, bus, or by taxi.
