The conference will be held at the Norges Handelshøyskole (NHH - the Norwegian School of Economics). NHH comprises over 2,700 full time students and a total staff of over 330, and the school co-operates closely with the foundations AFF and SNF. Together, NHH and its associated foundations constitute a major academic and organisational entity with more than 470 employees, and they are the leading centre of competence for economics and business administration in Norway. Its facilities provides a prestigious and spacious environment for conferences.
Bergen has given a warm welcome to its visitors for more than 900 years. Bryggen has become a symbol of our cultural heritage and has gained a place on UNESCO's World Heritage List. The old Hanseatic wharf is architecturally unique and is perhaps one of the most familiar image in all of Norway. Today, Bergen is an international city packed with history and tradition, a big city with small-town charm and atmosphere.
