The Donostia Garden is organized by the BCBL and will focus on the neural tracking of events (i.e., speech, music, heartbeat, etc.), in addition to good practice in M/EEG studies. The Donostia Garden is an in-person event, with some sessions broadcasted across all Gardens.

Venue – How to reach the Donostia Garden
The conference will be held at the Parque Cientifico y Tecnologico de Guipuzcoa building.
Note that the venue is not located in the city center, but it can be easily reached from there by bus. Buses in San Sebastian run very regularly (every 5 minutes) and are easy to catch. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about finding the venue.
You can see the location of the venue on this map
Coming to Donositia by TRAIN
Situated right in the centre of the city, San Sebastian’s train station, known as the Estación del Norte (Northern Station), is connected to a large number of Spanish cities, including Madrid and Barcelona.
Connections to France are possible through Euskotren to Hendaye:
Coming to Donositia by BUS
San Sebastian has a sizable bus station that connects the city with others throughout Spain and part of the European continent. The main bus lines companies from San Sebastian are: Eurolines, Alsa, Vibasa, Pesa, Conda
Coming to Donositia by CAR
Getting to San Sebastian by car is very simple. The city is connected to the rest of Spain and to France by
- National Road N1/AP1 (Madrid-Irún),
- the A-8 (Bilbao-Irún) and A-63 (Paris-Irún) motorways,
- the A-15 trunk road (Pamplona-San Sebastian).
Nearly all areas of the city can be accessed on one of these highways. If you come to San Sebastian by car, there are more than 6,000 parking places available to you at different points in the city.
Coming to Donositia by PLANE
Within a radius of barely 100 kilometers San Sebastian has connections to 5 airports, 3 of them international. San Sebastian airport is 20 minutes from the city center. It has a shuttle service to the main Spanish cities: Madrid and Barcelona. Not far away are the airports of Bilbao, connected to the whole of Europe; and Biarritz, served by French, international and low-cost airlines.
We highly recommend you to find accommodation in the city center (Amara, Centro, Gros). The venue of the conference can then easily be accessed by bus (28 or 17). In the bus you can pay for your journey directly with your credit card.
Please note that San Sebastian is one of the most popular and touristic cities of Northern Spain, so we recommend booking your hotel as soon as possible in order to avoid availability issues.
For accommodation options you can check the Accommodation official website of San Sebastián, where you can find the full list of hotels, hostels, student hostels and also last minute offers.
