Hi Heike
Just saw the schedule...The time mentioned for 8 May does not specify the time zone. Is it 9 a.m GMT?

There's another f2f conference in Barcelona on Friday afternoon and Saturday that I'm attending, so I'll have to catch up with some of the sessions later.

The conference details are here Innovate ELT Conference 2016 "Power to the Teacher!"

They are pre-Service Teachers and are doing a Master's Degree on CLIL and ICT, so wherever you need them will do, Heike.

Thank you so much!
