The Conference Unit is part of the Department of Hospitality and Conferences. It provides conference planning expertise that ensures the success of the Institute’s many scientific conferences that attract scholars from throughout the world.

The Lopatie Conference Centre is the main hub for scientific conferences on campus. The Conference Unit coordinates and manages conferences at the highest professional standards that match the professional standards of the scientific disciplines throughout the Institute, and with a personal touch and attention to every detail. Each conference is custom-made to the specific needs of the involved scientists, with special attention to foreign scientists unfamiliar with Israel. This makes the Weizmann Institute a special place for our scientists as well as for visiting international scientists.

The unit is comprised of a team of trained professionals with years of experience in attending to the many details involved in scientific conferences.
