The ESCCA 2021 will be a VIRTUAL Conference. The social gatherings mentioned here below will not take place.
Come and join ESCCA and the exhibitors at the Welcome Reception that will be held in the Exhibition area. While meeting old and new friends and colleagues you'll will enjoy some drinks and local snacks.
The Conference Dinner will be held in the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania, located in the city centre.
The palace was constructed in the 15th century for the rulers of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the future Kings of Poland. It evolved over the years and prospered during the 16th and mid-17th as the political, diplomatic and culture centre. It was demolished in 1801, but has been fully reconstructed over a period of 16 years from 2002 to 2018. Nowadays it functions as a museum with Gothic, Renaissance and Early Baroque halls related to the varied historical and social functions of this residence.
Before dinner you will have the opportunity to discover the charming city centre of Vilnius during a 1-hour guided tour in small groups. Alternatively you can explore part of the museum and see the ancient ruins where you'll also find a rich collection of unique archaeological artefacts.
After pre-dinner drinks we'll head for the impressive Great Renaissance Hall for the Conference dinner.
