ICES Annual Science Conference 2023

Social events

Mix & mingle with your fellow scientists!

​​​​​​Monday 11 September

Welcome reception
19:00–21:00 Frontón Deportivo, Bilbao (Alameda de Rec​alde 28)

Enjoy the Basque culture and gastronomy!

We want you to get to know a sport of Basque origin that has been spreading all over the world since 1904, and which has led a multitude of Basque pelota players to play on frontons built on the five continents, especially in America and Asia. This is “Jai Alai”, the fastest pelota in the world, played with a wicker basket. We will have four of the best world players in this sport who will show us the beauty of Jai Alai and even share their technique with anyone who wants to. Are you up to the challenge?

We will end, as always in the Basque country, with a tasting of our products and our gastronomic culture.​​​
