Melbourne is the coastal capital of the south-eastern Australian state of Victoria. At the city's centre is the modern Federation Square development, with plazas, bars, and restaurants by the Yarra River. In the Southbank area, the Melbourne Arts Precinct is the site of Arts Centre Melbourne – a performing arts complex – and the National Gallery of Victoria, with Australian and indigenous art.
Set on the shores of picturesque Port Phillip Bay, the southern-most city of mainland Australia is rich in aesthetics, with its beauty enhanced by the meandering Yarra River, immaculate parks and gardens, public art, classical buildings and innovative design.

The venue for ICM-13 will be Story Hall, located at RMIT University’s Melbourne city campus. First built as the Hibernian Hall in 1887 and remodelled as the iconic Storey Hall in 1995, the iconic Storey Hall is both architecturally and historically significant. It has won numerous awards and combines both the historical and traditional aspects of the former Hibernian Hall to create a complex and daring building with its ultra-modern extension featuring geometric-shaped windows and tiles. Storey Hall is a multi-function venue, containing a lecture theatre, a number of seminar rooms as well as a 460 seat auditorium. The main hall combines classical and cutting-edge modern architecture into a vibrant and attractive whole. The shapes and spaces you see in Storey Hall were inspired partly by ‘chaos’ mathematics, particularly fractal
geometry. The seminar rooms, also known as the Green Brain, boast fantastic city views for day time and evening events. The Green Brain is a great space for intimate dinners, lectures, seminar, and board meetings and has a foyer to greet guests upon arrival near the venue.
