The theme of the conference is "Tasks in Context". The conference will bring together researchers and educators from many different countries around the globe who will be talking about how tasks are being used in different contexts around the world, and how contexts may shape tasks and tasks may shape contexts.

The University of Barcelona, with over 65000 students in 18 different faculties and hundreds of undergraduate and graduate programs, has a long and rich history of research and teaching. We are also sure the City of Barcelona has many things to offer for you to have a pleasant stay during and around your attendance to the conference.
