The Stadsgehoorzaal is one of the largest concert halls in the city center of Leiden. Most of the STI 2014 Conference takes place in the Aalmarktzaal, one of the halls of the Stadsgehoorzaal.
The Aalmarktzaal is the newest hall in the Stadsgehoorzaal and was built in 2004, when part of the building was renovated. The Stadsgehoorzaal has a long history. It was built in 1891, after the original Stadsgehoorzaal was destroyed by a large fire. The Stadsgehoorzaal is an impressive example of neorenaissance architecture, which is hardly present anymore in the Netherlands.
The uniqueness, history and location of the Stadsgehoorzaal make it the ideal place for the coming STI 2014 Conference.
