The symposium will be held at the Lamot Congress and heritage center. Lamot is a unique conference centre situated at the waterside, in the historic centre of Mechelen, Belgium. The former brewery, where up until the eighties the legendary Lamot beer was produced, today is one of the most daring feats of contemporary architecture right in the heart of Mechelen.
