The Conference will be held at the Universidad de Antioquia, Medellín (Colombia).

Because of its transformative nature, the Universidad de Antioquia affects all social sectors through research, teaching and outreach.
Research and teaching constitute the pivotal points of the academic life of the University, and both are joined by outreach in order to achieve institutional goals of an academic or social kind.



Medellín is one of the most rapidly developing cities in the South America. It combines the modern architecture with the heritage of the Spanish colonial period. The city is famous for the sculptures of Botero whose museum is located at the historical center. After the violent past, Medellín moves to safety and modernity. It offers an excellent infrastructure and facilities for organisation of high level international meetings. Surrounded by the Andes, the city of Medellín can be considered as an Esmerald of Columbia. The landscape evokes the drive of the colonists who toiled their way through a rugged topography and whose descendants founded this large industrial, ever-thriving city of hard-working, persevering people.

Due to the beauty of its women, the warmth and friendliness of its people, the year-round spring-like weather, and its gorgeous flowers and mountains, Medellín attracts like a magnet. As a city with a great gastronomic, commercial and tourist offer, it provides countless opportunities for leisure vacations and business.

With a renowned leadership in finance, banking, services, politics, art, culture, communications, fashion, and entertainment industries, the city is a true development axis.

In February 2013, Medellín was chosen as the most innovative city in the world due to its recent advances in politics, education, and social development.

The paisas, as the people from this region of the country are called, have earned a reputation as enterprising and visionary people who are also great bargainers. Their proactive spirit, frugality, and hospitality have become proverbial, and they are also famous for loving life on the street and exaggerating their colorful stories.
