The Academic Conference itself will take place in Rotterdam. With the exception of the Academic-Industry interaction, the main activities of the conference will be situated at the campus of the Erasmus University. It is located in the eastern part of Rotterdam with a view on the river Meuse. The campus is recently completely renewed and offers a very attractive ambiance. It offers convenient conference rooms (50 to 60 places) for parallel sessions in a theatre set-up that stimulates participation in discussion. There is great flexibility in allocating the number of rooms for the parallel sessions, so that eventually even more paper presentations can be accommodated.
Adjacent to the Grand Aula – where plenary sessions can take place - and the smaller conference rooms is a large and convenient Central Hall in which all kinds of catering can be accommodated. Together with a nice courtyard and a number of restaurants and coffee corners, the venue offers a great number of possibilities to meet less formally.
