The conference workshops and masterclasses will take place at the Unteres Schloss campus of the University of Siegen. The main building of the campus is a castle – the Unteres Schloss – that was built in the 15th century and since 2017 the castle has been working as one of the facilities of the University.

The castle has been completely renovated so to attend to the demands of a modern university enterprise without harming the protection of the monument, which has more than 500 years of history. The 6256 m² building hosts lectures attending around 3500 students and is the workplace of more than 200 university employees.

The campus is very central and close to many other historical buildings – e.g. the Oberes Schloss, the Nikolaikirche and the Marienkirche – and museums – e.g. the Museum of Contemporary Art – that can be of interest for tourists. It can be easily reached with public transport and is located less than 10-minute walk from the city Central Station.

The Ludwig Wittgenstein Haus, a former Hospital, is located in the city center of Siegen right beside the Unteres Schloss, a castle from the 17th century. Named after the famous philosopher Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein (1889-1951), it should remind researchers of the plurality of self-reflectivity, mutability and plurality of academic schools of thought – qualities that are also of great importance for the Faculty of Economics at the University of Siegen.

The new lecture rooms will be the perfect fit for the ECSCW 2020 workshops and masterclasses.

Conference @Kulturhaus Lÿz

The ECSCW 2020 takes place in the center of Siegen at the Kulturhaus Lÿz. The Kulturhaus Lÿz is a multifunctional forum with supra-regional appeal. Based on a long tradition as a place of culture and education the Kulturhaus Lÿz, redesigned with funding from the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, opened on 9 November 1996. Since then, a beautiful glass foyer adorns the south side of the house. The Bistro Lÿz moved in with a restaurant, but the „star“ of the renovation was undoubtedly the stage of the venue, equipped with the latest technology, almost 300 seats and a large control room, offering all possibilities. In the meantime, the Lÿz has become one of the largest venues in South Westphalia with about 40,000 visitors and almost 200 events per season.
