ECCE 2017 - Venue

Umeå University, founded in 1965, has a strong international presence with students, teachers and researchers from all over the world and was in 2016 ranked as one of the three best universities in Europe for international students, according to the International Student Barometer. Umeå University is a dynamic meeting place where interdisciplinary knowledge is generated and where creative environments attract students, researchers, teachers and collaborating partners nationally as well as internationally.

One of these creative environments is Sliperiet (the Grindery in English), located in Umeå Arts Campus close to the Umeå River. Together with its neighbours, Umeå School of Architecture, Umeå Institute of Design, Umeå Academy of Fine Arts, the University's museum of contemporary art and visual culture, Sliperiet constitutes a meeting place for interesting encounters and opportunities. The 2017 European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics will take place in this context.
