The conference will be hosted at the main campus of Blekinge Institute of Technology, a modern university situated in the 17th-century naval city of Karlskrona. Karlskrona, a UNESCO World Heritage site, preserves many of its original landmarks and baroque architecture. The city sits in the Blekinge archipelago of 30 islands, which forms a nature preserve that is designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Close to nature and the ocean and with plentiful cultural sites, this popular region attracts many recreational visitors. The region is also well known for its high-tech industry and is host to many leading companies.
