Conference venue






Munich, which is located on the banks of the river Isar north of the Alps, is the capital and largest city of Bavaria, Germany. The year 1158, when Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony and Bavaria, built a bridge across the Isar right beside a settlement of Benedictine monks, is believed to mark the founding year of the city. Today Munich is particularly well known for its “Oktoberfest” (or “Wiesn” as the locals call it), which lasts from late September to the first weekend in October and is the largest annual folk fair in the world. The “Oktoberfest” was first celebrated in 1810 on the occasion of the marriage of King Ludwig and Princess Therese of Sax-Hildburghausen and became an important part of the Bavarian culture.






The conference will take place at the Kavaliershaus of Nymphenburg Palace, Südliches Schlossrondell 23, 80638 Munich.
