the Hague, the Netherlands
The Hague “City of Peace and Justice” is a perfect venue to host this conference on intelligence and security informatics as it can be considered the seat of international law.

The Hague region has more than 300 security businesses specialized in cybercrime, forensic research, national security and urban security. The sector has a turnover of €1.5 billion and 10,000 jobs.
The Hague is the seat of the Dutch parliament and government. The heart of the city contains most of the historic architecture from the medieval, renaissance, and Baroque periods. The Hague offers visitors lots of outdoor cafes and shopping opportunities. The Hague city center is fairly compact and easily accessible on foot. The Hague, furthermore, has an efficient system of light rail, trams and busses, running mostly on free tracks allowing for a fairly speedy ride.
Originally, the Hague was built on the dunes. That is why, just outside the city, one can enjoy the most wonderful scenery. The Hague is located near the sea and dunes offering splendid leisure activities, either in Scheveningen or Kijkduin. Sunbathing, sports, walking and bicycling trips, food, drink and nightlife are all the ingredients offered for a great day at the beach or in the dunes.
