About Subsidia 2017

Welcome to Subsidia 2017!


One of the senses of the Latin word Subsidia is “assistances, supports, aids” and, as a matter of fact, this conference aims at raising awareness of the tools and resources (available or under development) that may assist professionals and scholars in speech-related areas in successfully conducting their research.


These resources are often intended for their use in a specific area of expertise but are equally suitable and practical in other related fields in which they might not be well-known. For this reason, the conference is completely interdisciplinary and it embraces contributions on all aspects concerned with the study of speech from the multiple perspectives from which it is addressed.


Subsidia 2017 will take place in Málaga, one of Spain’s most vibrant and welcoming cities, full of art, history and sun.  The programme will include plenary lectures by renowned experts in different fields, as well as specialised workshops and oral presentations and posters sessions.  Details concerning the event will be made public on this site and on social media (Twitter and Facebook).


The Organising Committee of Subsidia is firmly convinced that this academic meeting will constitute a unique opportunity to exchange knowledge and establish new, fruitful contacts.


We are looking forward to your attendance.

Málaga, capital city of the province of the same name, is Spain’s 5th city in population. It is located to the south of the Iberian Peninsula in a privileged natural setting.


Bearing witness to the origins of Mediterranean culture in ancient times, Málaga nowadays combines its leading position in Andalusian tourism industry with the vitality of its deeply rooted traditions. The city boasts a natural heritage with great environmental value. Visitors are encouraged to explore the Parque Natural Montes de Málaga or the natural park Desembocadura del Guadalhorce.



Visitors can catch the best views of the city from the Castle of Gibralfaro (14th c.), attached to the Arabic Fortress (Alcazaba) by a stretch of a wall. The city opens on to the sea with the port and La Farola promenade, one of the main leisure areas. The Roman Theatre and the historic centre of the city stretch at the foot of the castle. The old quarter is home of the Cathedral (16-18th c.), also known as  “la Manquita” ‘the little one-armed’ due to its unfinished right tower.

The most famous festivals in the city are Easter and the Feria de Málaga. The former is declared Festival of International Tourist Interest and the latter fills with joy the streets in August. As for the musical folklore, Málaga is a good destination to approach flamenco art through its numerous tablao shows.



Barceló Málaga Hotel stands out for having a unique design and a prime location, since it is just fifteen minutes walk away from the historic centre and has a direct connection to the AVE train station, next to which it stands. It has a large convention and meeting centre - with an area larger than 1,500 m2 - which is carefully equipped with the latest technology and amenities. It is one of the top fifty business hotels in the world according to the prestigious magazine Wallpaper*.  Its characteristic EDHA (from Sp. Estructura Deslizante para Humanos Atrevidos, ‘Sliding Structure for Daring Humans’), a huge steel slide connecting the first floor with the B-Lounge, stands out within the exclusive and avant-garde design of the hotel.



Location: Camino de Casabermeja, 128. 29014. Málaga

The conference dinner will be taking place on the 22nd of June at 20:30h at Hacienda Los Nadales, located just 15 minutes away from Málaga city centre in a natural setting that invites the visitor to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountain, where we will enjoy extensive outdoor spaces.


The venue is a palace surrounded by one of the best examples of landscaped garden in Spain, not only because it is home to subtropical flora but also for its abundant furniture and recreational areas, such as pergolas, benches, pools, bridges, statues, fountains, arbors, etc.


The Organization will provide participants with a bus transportation service to the event.






Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport is located 8 Km away from the centre of Málaga and consists of three terminals which serve an average of 15 million passengers per year with more than 60 operating airlines. There is a direct access from Málaga’s ring road. If you wish to reach the city centre from the airport by car, take the MA-20 road at the exit of the airport compound and continue straight up to Exit 7 (Avenida de Andalucía). Continue on Avenida de Andalucía until you reach the roundabout at the end of the road, and take the first exit towards María Zambrano Train Station. The hotel is located right next to the station.







Thanks to the high-speed train (AVE), it only takes two and a half hours to get to Málaga from Madrid, with different daily services and rates. It should be noted that there is a direct service from Málaga to Barcelona with no stop or train change in the capital. Also, the Avant service operates regular routes from cities such as Sevilla or Córdoba to Málaga.  Trains depart and arrive to María Zambrano station, located next to Hotel Barceló, in the heart of Málaga and a few meters away from the bus station.






There are several access points to Málaga from regional road, highway and motorway. To access the city from the East or the West, take the A-7 (Autovía del Mediterráneo) or its toll counterpart, the AP-7. An alternative to the access by motorway or highway is the national road N-340 (Carretera del Mediterráneo), which starts in Cádiz and runs along the coast up to Barcelona.  Lastly,  Málaga has another road access from the North of the city: the A-45 (Autovía de Málaga), which starts in Córdoba and connects to highway A-4. This highway allows to connect to inland cities such as Madrid, from where many other Spanish highways are accessible.





Both national and international bus services arrive to Málaga’s bus station.  Numerous local bus companies have this station as their departure point and connect the Costa del Sol region to the four cardinal points of the nation, as well as to Morocco, Portugal, France, and even further away countries such as Poland or Romania.  The approximate duration of some of the domestic routes is the following:


Madrid – Málaga: 6 hours

Barcelona – Málaga: 17 hours

Bilbao – Málaga: 11 hours

Sevilla – Málaga: 2.45 hours

Córdoba – Málaga: 3.30 hours

Granada – Málaga: 2 hours





The conference venue (Hotel Barceló Málaga) is well connected to the city centre by the following bus lines:

Line 20: From  stop Av. Explanada de la Estación to Plaza de la Marina.




Lines 3 and 5: From stop Ayala (Los Arcos) to Plaza de la Marina.

Málaga is also endowed with a subway network (metro). The metro station Héroe de Sostoa – Estación on Line 1 is located only two minutes away from Hotel Barceló Málaga. The journey from a central metro station such as Plaza de la Victoria to Héroe de Sostoa – Estación takes approximately 25 min.
