XX International Conference on Chemical Reactors
December 3-7, 2012, Luxemburg


This time we invite you to Luxemburg – a small and pretty country. Luxembourg is a highly developed, stable constitutional monarchy and parliamentary democracy. There are many interesting facilities in Luxembourg. After 400 years of domination by various European nations, Luxembourg was granted the status of Grand Duchy by the Congress of Vienna on June 9, 1815. Although Luxembourg considers 1835 (Treaty of London) to be its year of independence, it was not granted political autonomy until 1839 under King William I of the Netherlands, who also was the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. In 1867, Luxembourg was recognized as independent and guaranteed perpetual neutrality.

The national language of Luxembourg is Luxembourgish, a blend of Dutch, old German, and Frankish elements. The official language of the civil service, law, and parliament is French, although parliamentary debate and court cases are conducted mainly in Luxembourgish and police case files are recorded in German. German is the primary language of the press. In addition, English is taught in high schools. Most Luxembourgers, as a result, speak English.


The conference will be held in the Mondorf Parc Hotel**** which is situated in Mondorf-les-Bains. Located in Mondorf-les-Bains (18 km from Luxembourg City Centre), this property is situated in the historical district and surrounded by a 40 acres parkland. Mandorf is very closely to the boundaries with France, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands.
