Conference Venue - HKU

The University of Hong Kong
The University of Hong Kong (HKU) is the territory’s oldest tertiary institution, with a history stretching over a hundred years. HKU has gained international recognition for its accomplishments as a research-led comprehensive university comprising ten faculties with over 28,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students, and almost 7,500 academic staff.
 
Meeting Rooms
The 6th World Conference on Research Integrity will be held at the Grand Hall in the Lee Shau Kee Lecture Centre which is a focal point of the Centennial Campus of HKU. The Grand Hall, completed in September 2012, has been built as a modern and multi-functional box-in-box structure, and well-equipped with modern lighting and audiovisual facilities such as built-in cinema projection system for real-time video recording. It can accommodate more than 900 participants and will be used for the opening and plenary sessions.

There are plenty of lecture rooms of different seating capacities located around the Grand Hall. These lecture rooms can be used for symposia, focus tracks, concurrent sessions and small group meetings. Besides, there is a large foyer outside the Grand Hall, which is an optimal area for poster displays and exhibition.

HKU’s main campus is situated in the Mid-Levels area of Hong Kong Island, and coming to the University has become more convenient since the opening of the MTR (metro) West Island Line extension in December 2014.
