The main conference will take place at the main building of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU). The largest lecture theatre in the main building can accommodate more than 800 participants. The venue provides the perfect infrastructure for teaching and presentations and therefore, for holding a conference. It also provides an architecturally stimulating environment with historic buildings that can host banquets, demos and posters. The building is located in the heart of the city, only minutes from Munich's touristic center, the Marienplatz, and in the Schwabing area which provides the highest density of restaurants and pubs within the city.

Workshops, Tutorials and the Doctoral Consortium will take place at Amalienstraße 73a which is located behind the main conference venue.

About Munich

Munich is Germany's third largest city and sometimes ironically called the northernmost city of Italy. It combines a vibrant cultural, economic and scientific scene with a unique southern flair and a relaxed way of life. Its beer gardens make it equally attractive in the summer as its skiing resorts do in the winter. The nearby Alps provide endless opportunities for outdoor endeavors at any time of the year. Munich hosted the 1972 Olympic summer games and the 2011 FIS ski world cup. It has a highly developed public transport system of buses, trams, subways and local trains, which makes reaching every part of the city fast and easy.

Munich is one of the main science locations in Germany and Europe. Internationally operating companies such as Siemens and BMW have research facilities located throughout the city. It is also home to many foreign research facilities like DoCoMo Euro-Labs. In addition, Munich has several Universities, the most important one being the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) and the Technische Universität München (Technical University of Munich, TUM). Both were among the winners in Germany's national elite university ranking (Exzellenzinitiative), which only lists nine universities in all of Germany so far. Overall, the research landscape in Munich is not only very wide and vivid but also diverse and the conference will attract a lot of attention and will benefit from this, most probably attracting a new audience and fresh blood.

The conference date in late August also falls into Munich's main hiking season. Various companies offer relatively cheap day trips to hiking areas in the nearby Alps, which can be reached by bus within 1-2 hours. This allows conference participants, to extend their stay by a day or two and have a full day of mountaineering without even switching hotels, and be back in Munich in time for dinner.
