LANGUAGE
The official language of CiLR 2019 is English.

CLOTHING
During the entire meeting, attire will be informal.

CLIMATE
The Mediterranean climate is in full swing in June, which means you can expect high temperatures, plenty of sunshine and clear blue skies for most of the month. Barcelona sits on an elevated plateau on Spain’s northeast coast. Its position leaves it open to cooling winds from the Atlantic, which can lower temperatures and make the weather much colder at night. Temperatures range from 16°C to daily highs of 24°C. Rain is very rare and Barcelona weather in June is mostly warm, dry and sunny. 

VISA REQUIREMENT AND LETTER OF INVITATION

Check with your local embassy what sort of documents are necessary in your specific case, as this may differ between delegates from the same country.
