Conference Venue

 
The Jacob Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research are located at the Sede Boqer campus of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Situated at the edge of a scenic cliff overlooking the Biblical “Zin Valley" and adjacent to several spectacular national parks and nature reserves, the campus makes a breathtaking venue for an academic gathering.
