As venerable as the buildings of the ancient Roman city - as sparkling as the world-famous Moselle wine: the University of Trier is both an old and a young university. Located in the heart of Europe, it has developed into a high-performance, research-active and internationally networked university.
As a member of the University of the Greater Region, it offers students and researchers the opportunity to study and conduct research simultaneously in Metz, Nancy, Luxembourg, Liège, Kaiserslautern and Saarbrücken.
Around 12,000 students and more than 1,400 employees appreciate the short distances between lecture halls and facilities and the personal atmosphere on the green, artfully landscaped campus overlooking the Moselle.
The main conference and the workshop/tutorials will be held at the main campus (Campus I), Universitätsring 15, 54296 Trier, Germany (see: How to Reach the Conference Area).
