The lecture theater for BSR14 will be Palaestra et Odeum which is located on University Square and owned by Lund University. The building was designed by Helgo Zettervall and built in 1883. Previously, the botanical gardens were situated on this site and behind the facade lie the remains of the Orangery that once stood here dating from the mid-18th Century. Originally, the building housed a gymnasium and Choir halls, however, these were destroyed after a fire in 1980 and replaced by an auditorium.
Palaestra is located next to the main building of the University, in the center of Lund.
The reception, lunches and poster sessions are at AF Borgen, the main building of the Academic Society, a historic building in the centre of Lund.
