On Wednesday, 7 November, the night before the end of the conference, we are organising our first Research Fellows Party at one of Utrecht’s nicest pop venues EKKO. Free local, vegetarian and ecological food will be served followed by performances and music. We also have a stage, a microphone and an acoustic guitar available for everyone who’s up for a spontaneous act. Please be aware that you need to sign up if you would like to join for dinner so we can make sure there will be enough (but not too much) food for everyone – you can sign the list at the Conference Registration Desk on Monday, 5 November when you enter the conference. Everyone is most welcome!
