The Venue

The conference will be held at the University’s Belval Campus. With its mixture of former steelwork facilities and modern architecture, Belval is a unique site with an inspiring atmosphere. On the 120 hectares of grounds that once housed Luxembourg’s largest steel foundry, academic research and teaching, work and leisure, industry and commerce and home life and culture entered into a thriving mixture.

The conference sessions are hosted in the “Maison du Savoir”, in the very shadow of the old blast furnaces.
