 Thanks.  I am waiting anxiously to hear the details.  Getting funds approved to go is a long process.

 I am extremely excited. I won a grant to attend the conference and can't wait to start. I want to observe Citilab as an effective learning environment and creative space, as well. I have tried to communicate via  their website with no response. Can anyone hook me up with an English-speaking native to give me a tour of the facility? I don't think I am the only one who is fascinates by the lab model.

Registration opened April 1 but I cannot find any information about registering.  Where do I register?

 You're right Robin, we're running a little behind schedule. Thsi weekend program committee will decide on 100 proposals entered, publish a rough program and open up the registration. Please allow su till the end of next week (that's april 12) to get everything properly arranged.

If all goes well with ticket / payment provider it will be this week, that's April between 10th and 13th ... Are you afraid we sell out in days? :-)

I am writing  a grant to attend this conference, but I can' t find a registration fee anywhere.  Can you telll me what it will be?  Also, will you be booking rooms in a nearby hotel?  If so, please give me the cost of a single room.  Any other information you could give me about the event would be very helpful in writing my grant.  Thanks.

 We'll try to keep registration at € 100 for three days (early bird tariff april / may), maybe a few euro's extra for ticketing costs. Within walking distance you'll find NH and Novotel with rooms at approx.  € 80 - € 120 a night. This weekend we'll update the main website with more information on this. Expecially the code to use for special rate. If you're on a tight budget you may want to check wimdu.com, booking.com and the like. Citilab Cornellá is 15 minutes walk + 15 minutes train from downtown Barcelona, so staying in the more turistic areas of barcelona is an option too.

 Dear Vaneesa,

 

Thank you for your reaction. I gues gender gap is an issue in a lot of places and it's definitely a good one for Connecting Worlds. Please prost your comment, even if it's not fully worked out, through www.scratch2013bcn.org/proposals as it will give the program committe a single source of the proposals made.

I would really like to learn how computer curriculum is presented/taught/prioritized outside of America and if they also have a gender gap in the computer science industry. I am not an expert so I don't think I'd have much to contribute, but I'd be happy to help organize or moderate such a panel.
