The conference takes place in Madrid, capital of Spain. Madrid is located at the crossroads between Europe, America and Africa. It has excellent connections by air with the main cities of the world.

Centuries of art and culture have endowed Madrid with museums, palaces and castles. Madrid has the greatest art collection in the world, with the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen museums, as well as some 70 other museums, innumerable monuments and a wide and varied programme of concerts, ballet and opera.

Few places in the world have such varied artistic and historical wealth so close by: Toledo, El Escorial, Aranjuez and Avila are just a few examples.
