With regard to museums, this city has more than its fair share. Utrecht is especially proud of its unique Museum Quarter. In the Museum Quarter, situated in the heart of the city, there are seven large museums. The Museum Quarter forms a chain of courtyards, canals, mediaeval houses, churches, galleries, museums, restaurants, and much, much more. In this municipal treasure trove the beauty, history, art and culture of Utrecht can be explored. The Dom Tower, more than six centuries old, at 112 metres literally forms the area's high point.
Finally, as previously stated, the city of Utrecht is centrally located in the Netherlands, approximately 30 minutes by train from both Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport and 45 minutes from Rotterdam and The Hague. See further http://utrecht.utrechtyourway.nl
Prompted by its rapid growth in recent decades, the University has moved many of its departments from the city centre to the University's Uithof campus. The campus has been enriched by some much-discussed buildings designed by prominent Dutch architects, which has led to its reputation as a showcase for modern architecture. As a matter of fact, the main venue, The Educatorium was designed by Rem Koolhaas, a world renowned Dutch architect. This campus will host the conference. It has a large number of both small and large lecture facilities to allow plenary sessions, paper sessions, workshops and demonstrations. Also, the main lecture centre has accommodations for exhibitors.
