After a very successful conference in Hesinki with a record crowd we are heading for Rotterdam. We were delighted to welcome more than 150 participants from all over the world; 20 countries from five continents were represented.

Rotterdam is world famous mainly because of the port, but in the last decade Rotterdam has grown into a bustling but welcoming metropole. Rotterdam is the second largest city in the Netherlands with 600.000 inhabitants and 1.200.000 in greater Rotterdam. Rotterdam is famous for its festivals , offers a great nightlife, and has lot of shops which are open 7 days a week! In addition, Rotterdam is well known for its modern architecture which you can find throughout the city. The Erasmus Bridge and the Cube houses are great examples of this modern industrial design. All sights in Rotterdam can be reached by means of the quick and cheap public transport system.
