EUSPN 2021 will be held in the city of Leuven. Leuven is the capital of the province of Flemish Brabant in Belgium. It is located about 25 kilometres (16 miles) east of Brussels. It is the 10th largest municipality in Belgium and the fourth in Flanders. Leuven is home to the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, the largest and oldest university of the Low Countries and the oldest Catholic university still in existence. The related university hospital of UZ Leuven, is one of the largest hospitals of Europe. The city is also known for being the headquarters of Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world's largest brewer and one of the five largest consumer-goods companies in the world.

The conference venue will be at Park Inn (by Radisson) Hotel (Leuven), which is located right in the heart of the Leuven city. The hotel is less than 2 mins walk from the Leuven train station. All you have to do is to get off the train (or the taxi or the bus) and take the elevator to the bridge connecting the hotel with the rest of the city. Leuven city is directly connected with the Brussels International airport with a 13 min connection via train, 45 mins via bus or a 20 min by taxi (or Uber).
