The Conference will be held within the campus of the Kraków AGH University of Science and Technology. AGH University of Science and Technology is one of the leading technical universities in Poland, located in Kraków. The university was established on 20th October, 1919, and was formerly known as the University of Mining and Metallurgy. Being mainly a technical school, AGH serves science and industry through educating students, the development of academic staff, as well as research and development.

A unique feature of AGH university campus in comparison to other Polish universities is primarily the fact that the teaching and research facilities, university administrations, student organizations, sport and recreational facilities, as well as student accommodation are all located in one district of the city, hence creating an integral system. The university campus is located between the streets of Mickiewicza, Reymonta, Buszka, Tokarskiego, Armii Krajowej, Gramatyka, Nawojki, and Czarnowiejska, just within walking distance of the city centre.
