Venue & Accommodation

The 3rd International EPNOE Junior Scientists Meeting will be held from 14th – 15th of May 2018 in Maribor - Slovenia, Slomškov Trg 15. The Laboratory for Characterization and Processing of Polymers (LCPP) at the University of Maribor is the host of this event. It will take place in the main building of the University which is situated in the historic center of the second largest Slovenian city. Surrounded by flourishing vine-yards and the alps nearby, the city offers a positive atmosphere for academic exchange, open-minded discussions and recreation afterwards. The venue can be reached easily by train from the international airport of Graz - Austria in one hour, or by car in below fifty minutes. We recommend this connection. Connections by train or bus are also available from the airports of Vienna (Austria), Ljubljana (Slovenia) or Zagreb (Croatia). Plenty of accommodations of various prices and comfort levels and information about Maribor and the Štajerska region can be found under: or many booking platforms.

We have also reserved hotel rooms until the 15th of April. Please use the following hotels' e-mail addresses and the code EPNOE 2018 to book rooms for these rates.
