The conference will be located at the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Neuchâtel, directly at the shore of Lake Neuchâtel, the largest lake of Switzerland. About 4.000 students (of which 500 are doctoral students) are currently studying at the University of Neuchâtel. With its 75.000 inhabitants, Neuchâtel is a lovely little city located at the language border of German- and French-speaking Switzerland. The waterfront city is situated at the foot of the Jura mountains (with a height of 1.500 meters) and surrounded, at the east and west, by small wine-growing villages. Neuchâtel is not only known for its famous watchmaking industry (e.g., the Neuchâtel pendulum clock), but also for its precision and microtechnical industries and its local wine and food specialities (e.g., chocolate).

Faculté des lettres et sciences humaines, Espace Louis-Agassiz 1, CH- 2001 Neuchâtel.
