The meeting will take place at Jozef Stefan Institute, located within walking distance (20 minutes) of the city center of Ljubljana.

Ljubljana is a modern and lively city full of culture. It is home to numerous theaters, museums and galleries, and boasts one of the oldest philharmonic orchestras in the world. Origins of the city date back to Ancient Rome. Two thousand years ago, a Roman city called Emona stood on the site of the present-day Ljubljana.

As four Slovene regions meet in Ljubljana, the city's numerous restaurants and inns offer a wide range of local delicacies and superb wines. Today, scientists are drawn to the city because of its high ranking institutes and university, as are artists due to its world-famous graphic biennial, art academy and countless art galleries. International businessmen, economists and experts from all fields frequently attend the city's many business and congressional meetings, exhibitions and trade fairs.
