The conference will be held at the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina    in Halle (Saale). The National Academy promotes science and initiates discussions about key topics of significance for the welfare of society. Founded in 1652, the Leopoldina is the oldest academy for medicine and natural sciences in the world and is located in Halle (Saale) since 1878. It is funded by the German federal government and the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt.

The main building on the Jägerberg ("hunters' hill") was bought in 2009 by the Leopoldina and was intensively refurbished. The building contains a spacious banquet room, a second auditorium and several seminar rooms and is regularly the venue of international conferences.
