The BMSD sessions will be held at Aula de Donato - Politecnico di Milano. Founded in 1863, Politecnico is currently one of the most outstanding universities in Europe, ranked 28th in the world and 9th in Europe among technical universities, according to the QS World University Ranking. Milan itself is considered the Italian economic and finance center, with the headquarter of the Stock Exchange and of many of the most important industrial and financial businesses of Italy, having a population of 1.3 million. It is also the Italian symbol of fashion and design: it hosts many of the main Italian fashion maisons and international design fairs, such as “Settimana della Moda” (Milan Fashion Week) and the “Salone Internazionale del Mobile” (Milan Furniture Fair). The city offers to visitors the possibility to admire a wide range of monuments, museums and buildings reflecting the vestiges of history and culture left by the people who lived there. The ancient Roman remains, the Duomo, one of the largest cathedrals in the World and an important example of Gothic architecture in Italy. The Castello Sforzesco that hosts the Michelangelo’s “Pieta Rondanini”. The church of Santa Maria delle Grazie where is the famous masterpiece “The Last Supper” by Leonardo da Vinci. Expo 2015 is the next scheduled Universal Exposition and between 1 May and 31 October 2015 will be hosted in Milan. The Expo goal is no longer to show the latest advances in technology, but rather to address the challenges that human mankind faces nowadays. The Expo’15 theme will be: "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life". It would be therefore great hosting BMSD 2015 in Milan, and particularly at Politecnico di Milano. It is worthwhile mentioning that many important scientists and architects studied and taught there, among them Achille Castiglioni, Gio Ponti, Renzo Piano and Aldo Rossi, both Pritzker Prize winners in 1990 and 1998 respectively, and Giulio Natta, Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry in 1963. Politecnico takes part in several research and training projects collaborating with the most qualified European universities. Politecnico’s contribution is increasingly being extended to other countries: from North America through Southeast Asia to Eastern Europe.
