    Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar in Zaragoza

    The 2010 Robotics: Science and Systems conference will take place in Zaragoza, a warm, lively and historical city in NE Spain. The city was founded under roman emperor Caesar Augustus (and thus its name) around 14 BC and offers a host of historical sights covering its Roman, Islamic and Christian epochs. Nowadays it’s the fifth city in Spain with 700,000 habitants, a great nightlife and some of the best tapas bars in the world.

    Weather

    Zaragoza has a Continental Mediterranean climate, very dry, with cold winters and hot summers. With an average of 318 mm per year, rainfall is a rarity mostly occurring in spring. There is drought in summer with only a few storms in the late afternoon. In late June temperatures are typically around 30°C (86°F), reaching occasionally 40°C (104°F). In hot days the city seems deserted at midday, but in the evening it is again bustling with people going out for dinner or having a drink with friends in a terrace.
