In 2013 we have a spectacular venue for NetSci. The conference part of NetSci 2013 will be held at the Royal Library in Copenhagen, Denmark. From Wikipedia:

The Black Diamond (Danish: Den Sorte Diamant) is a modern waterfront extension to the Royal Danish Library‘s old building on Slotsholmen in central CopenhagenDenmark. Its quasi-official nickname is a reference to its polished black granite cladding and irregular angles. Designed by Danish architects Schmidt Hammer Lassen, the Black Diamond was completed in 1999 as the first in a series of large-scale cultural buildings along Copenhagen’s waterfront.

Apart from its function as a library, the building houses a number of other public facilities and activities, most of which are located around the central, toplit atrium which cuts into the building with a huge glazed front facing the harbour. The facilities include a 600-seat auditorium, the Queen’s Hall, used for concerts—mainly chamber music and jazz—literary events, theatrical performances and conferences. There are also exhibition spaces, a bookshop, a restaurant, a café and a roof terrace. Two museums are based in the Black Diamond, the National Museum of Photography and a small museum dedicated to cartoon art.

The Black Biamond is the largest library in Nordic countries and it contains every work published in Denmark since it was founded in 1648 by King Frederik III.
