Singapore Management University
The conference will be held within the Singapore Management University (SMU) campus. Purpose-built over 4.5 hectares of prime
Singapore land, SMU's campus is the first of its kind - designed, integrated and constructed in the heart of a fully developed cityscape.
Surrounded by museums, theatres, educational institutions, art galleries, cafes, restaurants and a range of retail outlets, planning
and development of the SMU campus involved a broad spectrum of professional, community, civic and public groups who together were intent are on creating a unique city campus directed towards the challenges of the new millennium, and yet connected to the historical origins of this important district.
The campus comprises six buildings - the six schools, the Li Ka Shing Library and the Administration Building. The buildings between
Bras Basah and Stamford Roads are fronted by trees, with the park landscape of the Campus Green right in the centre, and have glazed facades shaded by a veil of plants growing at each storey.
The campus has porous structures that engage the surroundings with open courtyards and free-flowing walkways and allow for an easy
and natural integration with activities of the city. The campus design and structure reflect and support the character of SMU's curriculum and its style of teaching.
The SMU campus offers an open environment in the heart of Singapore, with the ground floor of the buildings and the underground
Concourse freely accessible to the public. It also has many street-level linkages and the Bras Basah MRT station directly beneath SMU's University
