Assessment and the opportunity to learn
The 12th Annual AEA-Europe Conference was held in Belfast, 10-12 November 2011, with pre-conference workshops the day before the conference, on 9 November. The venue was Queen's University Belfast. The university has a record of academic achievement which stretches back more than 150 years. Founded in 1845, Queen's opened in 1849 when the first students entered the magnificent new college building designed and built by Charles Lanyon. Since then, the University estate has grown to more than 300 buildings - many of them listed for their architectural importance.
The magnificent Lanyon Building lent a spectacular backdrop to our event. At the heart of the campus, where the conference facilities are concentrated, the traditional quadrangle and cloisters provided a haven where delegates could relax during conference breaks while still enjoying the bustle and vibrancy of a modern working university.
