The symposium will take place at the University of Antwerp, Hof van Liere in Antwerp.
The beautiful 16th-century Hof van Liere and the adjacent historic buildings, which were constructed by the Jesuits in the 17th century, are an oasis of calm in the bustling city centre of Antwerp. The central Hof Van Liere, on the University of Antwerp’s Stadscampus, belongs to Antwerp’s cultural-historical patrimony. The regal building was built in 1516, commissioned by the Mayor of Antwerp at that time, Aert van Liere. Antwerp was on the threshold of its ‘golden’ 16th century, a fact that is evidenced by this beautiful building in the Brabant Gothic style.
In 1988, the Prinsenhof was bought by the University Faculties of Saint Ignatius (UFSIA) that later merged to become the University of Antwerp. The wings around the inner courtyard were once again restored and renovated. Since 2009, the University of Antwerp’s opened up the restorated rooms for scientific conferences. The unique location of the Hof van Liere gives these venues a special added value for both national and international conventions.
