VaMoS 2012 will be hosted by the Faculty of Economics and Management Science of the University of Leipzig, Germany. 

The University of Leipzig was founded in 1409. In the course of its diverse history, it grew to encompass a wide selection of disciplines comprising almost all areas of knowledge. World-renowned scientists have taught or studied in Leipzig, and important impulses for the development of thought originated here. 

Leipzig is one of the liveliest and most dynamic cities in Germany. Whether as a musical city, trade fair mecca or city of books – Leipzig has been an important European centre for hundreds of years. Famous poets such as Lessing, Klopstock, Gottsched or Goethe moved here. Philosophers such as Leibniz, Nietzsche and Bloch influence thinking in the city to this day. And Leipzig is especially well known across the world for its musicality, with a long tradition stretching back to the works of Bach and Mendelssohn Bartholdy in particular.
