Conference venue

The conference will be held at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Split. The conference room is situated on the third floor of the only modernist building at the Peristyle of the Diocletian Palace (Poljana Kraljice Jelene 1/III), which is one of the most admirable places in Split.

17-19 September 2015

We advise you to arrive in Split one day before the conference and plan on departing no earlier than 5:00 p.m. on final conference day.

Conference dates

Since the Faculty does not provide accommodation, we enclose the list containing links to hostels and private accommodation websites that can help you find a suitable and affordable place to stay:


All the above-mentioned accommodation units are very close to the Diocletian Palace and a short walk away from the conference room. However, you can choose to stay in any other hotel of your preference. We hope that this information will prove useful to you.
