The Conference will be held at Kaunas University of Technology, Kaunas, Lithuania.
Kaunas with only 360 thousand inhabitants is nevertheless one of the most
significant cities of Lithuania. It is not only a city of old traditions, but also a large centre
of business and industry. It can also lay claim to be a town of young people with over
40,000 students studying at one of eleven universities here.
Kaunas was always fated to play an important historical and cultural role in Lithuania.
In 1408, Magdeburg rights were granted to the city of Kaunas by the privilege of
Vytautas the Great. During the early 20th century Kaunas was the home
of the Lithuanian Government and the capital of state. However,
history tells us that even before this date, the city, situated at the confluence
of the rivers Neris and Nemunas, experienced many periods of great prosperity
and national importance. It's hard to name the single most famous feature of Kaunas.
From the historic 13th century Kaunas Castle to the romantic
City Hall Square, from the macabre Devils' Museum to the galleries of art varying
from classic to avant-garde ? Kaunas offers something for everybody.
The cosy and enigmatic Old Town of Kaunas extends into a vibrant Laisves avenue,
where visitors can enjoy the mix of modern and traditional shops, cafes and bars.
Also basketball is synonymous with Kaunas not only because we held the very first
official basketball game in Lithuania in 1922, but also because of the famous Zalgiris t
eam and its international superstar Arvydas Sabonis.
