The conference venue is located in the campus of the Faculty of Information Technology at the Brno University of Technology. The Faculty is a co-organizer of GUADEC 2013.

The campus premises used to be a Cartesian monastery which was founded in the 14th century. Just recently, the campus was renovated and now features a beautiful combination of historical and modern architecture.
