Conference venue will be the University of Graz, the second oldest university in Austria. Founded in 1585, it is now one of the largest universities in Austria with about 31,500 students and 4,000 employees. Nine Nobel laureates, e.g. Ludwig Boltzman and Roland Scholl, have taught and researched here.
The opening ceremony and opening lecture on Sunday evening will take place in the auditorium located in the main building, Universitätsplatz 3, which was erected in 1895 by the Viennese architect Karl Stattler. The auditorium has a capacity of up to 600 guests and is offering a historic and elegant atmosphere.
The congress will take place in the “RESOWI Zentrum”, the faculty of law, Universitätsstraße 15. There will be two lecture halls housing up to 300 people, where plenary and parallel oral sessions featuring invited presentations will be offered. The foyer and adjacent rooms (>750 m2) will provide sufficient space for coffee breaks and extended poster presentations, giving the opportunity for discussion and networking.
The conference dinner will be served at the old university (founded in 1607) in the former library hall located in the historic city centre. The completely renovated Late Baroque hall offers a beautiful atmosphere for dining.
