CAMPUS RÍO EBRO
The University of Zaragoza campuses are located in the autonomous Community of Aragon. The community is made up of three provinces: Zaragoza, Huesca, and Teruel. The original campus resides in Zaragoza, the capital of Aragon, but additional campuses were created in both Huesca and Teruel in 1985.
The Zaragoza campus is further divided into five different locations throughout the city, being Campus Río Ebro one of them. The campus is named after the river that traverses the city, which is the second largest and second in discharge volume in the whole Iberian Peninsula, and a symbol for Zaragoza and the region. Campus Río Ebro hosts the faculty of Economics and Business and the School of Engineering and Architecture, together with several research centers, including the BIFI institute. The campus is located in Actur-Rey Fernando district, in the northern outskirts of the city.
ADA BYRON ASSEMBLY HALL
The School of Engineering and Architecture (EINA for its Spanish acronym) is the faculty resultant from the merge, in 2011, of the Centro Politécnico Superior (CPS) and the Escuela Universitaria de Ingeniería Técnica Industrial (EUITI). Its dependencies are placed in three buildings named after prominent thinkers and engineers: Ada Byron, Torres Quevedo and Betancourt.
In particular, the congress will be host in the assembly hall of the Ada Byron building, named after the English mathematician and writer, also known as Ada Lovelace. She is chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage’s proposed mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. She was the first to recognise that the machine had applications beyond pure calculation, and to have published the first algorithm intended to be carried out by such a machine. As a result, she is often regarded as the first computer programmer.
The Ada Byron building assembly hall is a hall suitable for congresses, conferences, video projections, et cetera. It has a capacity of 288 seats and counts with an HD camera and integrated microphone.
