The conference will take place in the heart of the old town of Salzburg, at the Edmundsburg (Edmundsburg, Mönchsberg 2, 5020 Salzburg) – a 17th century villa with a wonderful view of the old town of Salzburg. The building is located above the Salzburg Festival Theatre atop the Mönchsberg and can be reached using a lift or by taking a unique, albeit steep, staircase.

There are many accomodation options in Salzburg, but due to the high number of tourists, especially during the summer months, we recommend booking as early as possible.
