On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, International Organising Committee and SSIEM, we welcome you to the International Congress of Inborn Errors of Metabolism, in Barcelona 2013.

Barcelona is a vibrant Mediterranean city with pleasant weather in September. It is a bastion of culture, provided by a huge art legacy. With a diverse and distinctive cuisine and good international communications, Barcelona welcomes its visitors with great kindness.

Experts and scientists from around the world will come to Barcelona to share their research, exchange experiences, spend a few days with colleagues and enjoy Catalan life and culture.

We have put together an ambitious and high level scientific programme, allowing the participation of multidisciplinary delegates. At the same time we have left space in the programme to show our visitors the city of Barcelona and its surroundings, architecture, culture, people and importantly, its gastronomy.

We will do our best to ensure that your goals and expectations for this ICIEM meeting are exceeded.
