The 2017 ECED Conference in Vilnius will be held in two locations. The opening session and welcome reception will be held at the recently opened and fully restored Franciscan Monastery in the city center. The following two days will be held in Hotel Artis next to the President’s Palace in the heart of the Old Town.

The program promises to be an exciting combination of plenary sessions, workshops and symposia, debates and the viewing of a recent Dutch film “Eva wants to Live”.

There will be ample possibility for socializing during the conference coffee and lunch breaks, at the opening reception and during the gala dinner that will be held in the famous ‘Legendos klubas” in Vilnius, a former cinema refurbished as a 1920s style cabaret. During the evening there will be a performance by the Ukrainian freak cabaret group “Dakh Daughters”.
