The main conference, the invited talks, the tutorials, and the David Dill symposium will take place from July 24th to 28th in the Heidelberg Stadthalle. The Heidelberg Stadthalle is a congress and cultural center close to the Neckar river. Its construction was inspired by both Renaissance and Art Nouveau (Jugendstils).

Places of interest there include the Museum of the pharmacy, der Großes Fass (the big barrel) of 228000 liters and the broken tower.
