The conference will be held in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium.
Louvain-la-Neuve is an entirely pedestrian university campus which, with its cafés, restaurants, shops, sports centre and theatre, offers all the advantages of a real town. It is also home to the region’s largest shopping centre: L’Esplanade. 20 minutes away from Brussels, it is easy to reach by car (underground and open air car parks) or by train (station: Louvain-la-Neuve Université, NOT to be confused with Louvain / Leuven, situated in Flanders). Brussels National Airport is within very easy reach.
Accommodation is not included in the Conference Registration. Nonetheless, 50 rooms have been reserved at the Hotel Ibis (Louvain-la-Neuve) for the Conference participants (Limited Places!).
The preferential price for conference participants is 93€ for a single room and 103€ for a double/twin room (breakfast & wifi included for both).
Some of the participants may need to take care of their own accommodation. Please consult our selection of hotels and B&Bs.
