The conference will take place at the University of Muenster (Münster), Germany. Münster is located in the northwest of Germany, near Dortmund and Bremen and fairly close to the Netherlands. Münster was founded in the year 805 and became well known when the Thirty Years War ended in 1648 as a result of a peace treaty signed in Münster`s town hall. Today, the restored city center with its arcades, churches, narrow alleys, lively squares, pubs and street cafes is popular with tourists and locals alike.

Münster can be reached via its international airport Münster/Osnabrück or, alternatively, via the airports of Bremen, Dortmund, Düsseldorf and Frankfurt. Münster is also well connected with the German high speed train system.

The conference is organized by Michael Pickhardt (Brandenburg University of Technology, Cottbus, Germany) and Aloys Prinz (Institute of Public Economics II, Münster School of Business and Economics, University of Muenster, Germany).
