Warsaw School of Economics is the oldest and the biggest economic university of Poland. It was created in 1906 under the name of Commercial Courses, already with the academic status. It developed through the period before Second Word War and also during the socialist period (under the name of the Central School of Planning and Statistics), and then, during transition, it came back to its pre-war name of Central School of Economics (in English: Warsaw School of Economics).
In the fifties and sixties it was the place of research and teaching of many well known Polish economists, among other, of Michal Kalecki, when he came back to Poland in in 1955.
Now Warsaw School of Economics has 5 faculties with more than 2000 students graduating every year.
The main campus is located at the crossing of Al. Niepodleglości and Rakowiecka streets, in the green part of Mokotów (southern part of the city centre). Three main buildings are situated within the main campus: two buildings built in the 1920: library and so called building A, facing Rakowiecka Street.

This building has a number of big auditoria, the biggest of them, which will host the opening of the conference, all keynote speeches, plenary session,awards ceremony and membership meeting looks like this:
On the ground floor the welcome reception and all catering will take place. Also book exhibitions will be organised there.
But the conference dinner will be in an even more interesting place. Across the park of the campus, where you can rest during the breaks of the conference, is located the Library, the oldest and the biggest economic library in Poland. It has a beautiful reading room which will be re-arranged to host the dinner of the conference on Saturday evening. The library will be available for visits on the other days, but please keep quiet, students and researchers will work there.
