The 32nd  International Congress for School Effectiveness and Improvement will be held in Stavanger, Norway. The city centre is pedestrian-friendly with most amenities within walking distance. 

It was one of Europe’s Cultural Capitals in 2008 and has made its mark as a culinary city. Despite its relatively small size (about 135 000 inhabitants), it has two restaurants with Michelin stars and lots of other restaurants and pubs in a very concentrated area downtown (you are bound to meet other ICSEI participants!)

There is also a downtown shopping area, a well-renowned theatre, a symphony orchestra with a new concert hall, and several museums. Please visit the tourist information for more information on sights and activities.
