The 2018 IEEE Statistical Signal Processing Workshop will be held in Historical Merchants’ Hall. The “Kaufhaus” is one of Freiburg‘s most outstanding buildings and a symbol of the importance of trade in medieval Freiburg.

The municipal market, customs, and financial administration building is identified as a center of trade by its arcades hall.  Between 1520 and 1532, Lienhart Müller constructed the department store located on Münsterplatz for the municipal market management. The emblems and the statues on the main façade created by Hans Sixt von Staufen depict a reverence to the house of Habsburg.

The Kaufhaus is located right next to Freiburg Cathedral on the city‘s main square with a plethora of nearby restaurants and boutique shopping. Within the venue, the elegant Emperor’s hall will be used for plenary lectures, the historical room will be used for meetings, and the Rococco and chimney hall will be available for poster sessions.
