The town

As a cosmopolitan town with a rich history, Liege definitely deserves its reputation as a «land of hospitality»: the first image that Liege and its province gives to tourists is one of a welcoming, animated region with a rich historical and architectural heritage. It is also intimately connected with the river Meuse, which has given the city its shape and moulded the character of its citizens. Take your time to discover this multi-faced city and its many neighbourhoods, which are like so many small villages. On Sunday mornings go and stroll through the longest market in Europe, all along the river.


Just 1-hour away from Brussels by train, Liege is the birthplace of the Emperor Charlemagne, the writer Georges Simenon and the inventor Zénobe Gramme. Situated at the crossroads of an important motorway network linking Paris, Amsterdam and Cologne, it is only a few miles away from Maastricht, Holland and Aachen, Germany.

Liege is a student town with university located in the centre of the city. Its nightlife is busy and lively. Evenings in the downtown streets called «le Carré» are unique. This part of the city has a double life: luxury shopping by day, and «joie de vivre» by night.


University of Liege

The University of Liege is the only complete public university in the French-speaking part of Belgium. It has a strong tradition of philosophical openness and one of the largest and most significant university libraries in Europe.
With its cutting-edge technological equipment and a science park of 69 active spin-off s, the University of Liege is also recognized as a centre of excellence in several scientific fields, including biotechnologies, space sciences as well as water sciences - Aquapôle.

The congress will be held in university buildings centrally located downtown in Liege.
