Lund is a quaint academic town with around 111 000 inhabitants, and roughly a third of the population are students or employees at Lund University. The close proximity to Copenhagen Airport makes this an ideal venue for international conferences. All conference activities including the scientific, exhibition and social programmes, will take place in the historic student union castle, located in Lundagård, at the heart of the campus and town.
The position of the exhibition hall right at the centre of activity for the academic program, and the inclusion of poster sessions and student awards ceremonies in a delegated area in the same room as the exhibition, ensures a constant flow through the area and more interaction between manufacturers and delegates. We welcome all those registered for the conference as exhibitors to attend the entire academic and social program. We also offer many ways to have a strong visual presence at the conference, detailed below. Finally, exhibitors are welcome for the entire duration of the conference, from start to end. We look forward to welcoming you to Lund.
The area reserved for exhibition is a 300m2 open area right inside the main entrance of the historical building that will house all lectures, poster exhibitions, and social events during the conference, see image above. The hall is beside the restaurant serving lunch on the ground floor, there is a coffee bar, bank machine, storage space and outside access directly on to this room. Windows with heavy curtains surround the hall. Internet access and furniture for the exhibition is supplied and included in the price. Student competitions and exhibitions of student applications will be in the same room, as will a portion of the poster exhibition, ensuring a constant flow of delegates through the area. The conference website includes space for delegates to assess and vote for best student, and if wished, manufacturer exhibits. Participating exhibitors can access the results, which rate their exhibition on a number of key areas relevant to eye-movements research.
