Social Events

To further facilitate communication between participants we have scheduled a number of social events including a welcome reception, conference dinner, barbecue, dragon boat race/tour and farewell party. The moderate fees for these events (if charged at all) are "symbolic" and do not cover the real costs. Thus, please join our socials!

Here you will find the conference agenda (schedule, latest update).
