Second day at the conference and closing.

Second and last day of the conference passed! Yesterday started with a small panel in which the PhD program students Andoni Cossío, Maddi Susperregi and Ekaitz Ikazuriaga presented their papers regarding The Inklings and also Harry Potter. This panel was followed by the paper presented by Dr. Eduardo Segura who gave a speech about the importance of the art and the immortality of the elves englobing J. R. R. Tolkien's works. In a second round, the former scholar of the faculty Dr. Miguel Santamaría presented his paper on the translation of J. R. R. Tolkien's works into Spanish.

Finally after a short break for coffee, the congress continued with a round table with all the participants (exept Dr. Ayerbe and Dr. Molpeceres). In this session, our guests debated about the topics presented between the two days of congress and put ideas in common.

To conclude with the congress, Dr. Raúl Montero and Dr. Martin Simonson thanked all the participants of the congress. 

The day ended up with a guided tour around the old town of Vitoria-Gasteiz to know more about its gothic background and visit some interesing points of this beautiful city.

So, we're done!

On behalf of the organization, thanks to everybody. It has been so nice to have you around. Thanks to our keynote speakers, to the people talking in the round tables, to every lecturer, chairs, friends, to the people attending the conference and to the collaborators. Good job!

We hope to organize this congress next year again and have our guests again in Vitoria-Gasteiz!
