Date and venue

EUGISES 2012 will run from Sept 06 (Thursday) – Sept 9 (Sunday) 2012. It will be held in Leuven, Belgium. Leuven is situated at a 25 kilometers from the EU’s capital Brussels. Leuven (www.leuven.be) has about 90,000 inhabitants. Add to this 35,000 post-secondary and 11,000 high school students and it should come as no surprise that the streets are filled with young faces and that the city lives at a student's rhythm: hectic weeks at the beginning of the academic semesters and relatively calm during vacation and examination periods.  

Founded in 1425, the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven) is the oldest university in the Low Countries and the oldest Catholic university in the world. Today KU Leuven is Belgium's largest university, consisting of faculties and departments, covering the complete range of scientific disciplines in the humanities, natural science and technology, bioscience and medicine, supported by about 8,000 staff members. Whereas the faculties provide high-quality interdisciplinary teaching, the departments strive for excellence in the related scientific domains.

Leuven is in easy reach from Brussels airport by train (15 minutes only; min. 1 direct train/hour) and also from the Brussels train stations (20 minutes)
