conference excursion and dinner
The bus to the excursion and dinner venue will leave from the Institute main entrance at 17:15.

The Technical museum of Slovenia, in Bistra near Ljubljana, was founded in order that a fitting record of Slovenia's industrial heritage might be kept. Its mission is: to collect, preserve, protect and exhibit moveable elements of heritage pertinent to and symbolic of the historical development of this nation's indigenous crafts, trades and industry. The first forestry and hunting collections were opened to the public in 1953. Today, across more than 6,000 m2 of exhibition space, there are permanent exhibits encompassing agriculture, transport, forestry, woodworking, hunting, fishing, textiles and electrical engineering. In addition to these, there are a number of dislocated collections in different parts of the country.
