18-20th September 2017, Ljubljana, Slovenia
Welcome to the web site of the ISPA 2017 symposium. ISPA 2017 is an international symposium that brings together researchers from many countries, serves as a forum for exchange of new ideas, and promotes international research collaboration.
The Symposium will be held in Ljubljana, the capital city of the Republic of Slovenia. Ljubljana is a city of culture. It is home to numerous theatres, museums and galleries, and boasts one of the oldest philharmonic orchestras in the world. As its inhabitants and numerous visitors will tell you, Ljubljana is a people-friendly city. Categorised as a medium-sized European city, it offers everything a metropolis does yet preserves its small-town friendliness. In Ljubljana the old meets the new; and it seems that history has spent all of the settlement’s five millennia preparing it to become the nation’s capital. It has managed to retain traces from all periods of its rich history; from the legacy of Roman Emona; through to the Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau periods characterised in the house fronts and ornate doorways of the city centre, the romantic bridges adorning the Ljubljanica river, the lopsided rooftops and a park reaching deep into the city centre. Here eastern and western cultures met; and the Italian concept of art combined with the sculptural aesthetics of Central European cathedrals.
