The Conference will take place in Hotel Majestic Belgrade, which is located in the midst of an attractive pedestrian downtown zone of Belgrade known as the Old Town.

Hotel Majestic is surrounded by heaps of restaurants, bars, shops, museums, and a variety of sightseeing attractions, such as the National Theatre and Kalemegdan Fortress.
