The City of Luxembourg, ideally located at the crossroads of Europe, was founded in 963 and has evolved from a fortress city of historical importance to become a European capital city. Noteworthy attractions include its historical heritage readily visible all throughout the city as well as its exceptional setting amidst the natural splendour of the Alzette valley.

The EMISA 2014 workshop will take place at the Abbey of Neumünster Cultural Exchange Center . This historical building complex is located next to the Alzette river at the base of the Old City plateau and features modern amenities for conferences, workshops and other events among a unique and inspirational setting.
