SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM

We follow the traditional MAPSP setting. It is a five day conference, starting on Monday morning and ending on Friday after lunch. Participants are expected to arrive on Sunday afternoon/evening. There will be several invited lectures and contributed talks will be given in three parallel sessions. We intend to have enough “free” time between the talks for discussions and social activities, as well as an open problem session.

Following the MAPSP tradition, the Wednesday afternoon will be scheduled without presentations to facilitate sports and/or collaboration

VENUE

After 20 years, the workshop will return to Hotel De Zeeuwse Stromen in Renesse, the Netherlands. Renesse is a village on the isle of Schouwen-Duiveland in the province Zeeland of the Netherlands. It is surrounded by dunes and beaches. The sand beaches of Renesse have a length of approximately 17 km. As the hotel is situated near the beach, there are plenty of possibilities for outdoor activities, like beach soccer or a nice hike on the beach. Furthermore, the hotel offers wellness facilities and next to the hotel are two tennis courts and mini-golf facilities. Also, bikes can be rented from the hotel.
