One of the attractive features of this conference is its venue. The conference will take place in the Mannheim Palace, which is the home of the University of Mannheim. We will again hold the conference in the Mannheim Business School (MBS) Lecture Hall that allows for an interactive setting. The baroque style Mannheim Palace was built in between 1720 and 1760 under the governance of the electors Karl Philipp and Karl Theodor. It served as the residence of the electors of the federal state Palatinate (“Pfalz”) from 1720 to 1777. Following the tradition of our past events, we are also planning to have attractive social events in the evening (i.e. conference dinners) and offer a post conference event. Details of this will be made available early in 2019.
