The Joint ISTDM / ICSI conference 2018 will be held in Potsdam (Germany). Potsdam is the capital and largest city of the German federal state of Brandenburg, bordering directly to the German capital Berlin and is part of the Berlin/Brandenburg Metropolitan Region.
The City Potsdam is known for its historical legacy as a former royal residence for kings of Prussia, having numerous and unique castle and park facilities. The city is surrounded by a series of interconnected lakes and cultural landmarks, in particular the parks and palaces of Sanssouci, which were included in 1990 in the list of the world cultural and natural heritage of mankind by the UNESCO as the largest ensemble of the German World Heritage sites.
Potsdam is also famous for the traditional Babelsberg film studio, which was founded in 1912 as the world's first large film studio and is today one of the leading centers of film and television production in Europe.
Since the middle of the 19th century Potsdam has developed into a European science center. Today three public universities and more than 30 research institutes are based in the city.
