Workshop 2017

The CWI-Inria workshop which will take place at CWI, Amsterdam, on September 19,20 2017.

The registration is free but mandatory. Please fill in the registration form here.

Regarding accomodation in Amsterdam, a number of rooms have been blocked at Hotel Casa ( located nearby CWI.
The rates per night are: €139.00 for single use, and €152.50 for double use (incl. breakfast, excl. 5% city tax).
In order to make use of this preferred rate, you need to book your room by sending an email to and mentioning the reference number GF24082. (You will need a credit card for the booking).
This rate is valid through beginning of July, so I would advise that you reserve your room as soon as possible,
since Amsterdam is indeed very busy in September and prices go higher very quickly.
You may reserve for a longer period for this same rate.

You may contact Susanne van Dam ( if you have any practical questions regarding the hotel.

As mentioned in our previous mail, each joint project will have a time slot of 30 minutes for a scientific presentation.
May we kindly remind you to send us before end of June the title and abstract for your presentation, and the name(s) of the scientist(s) who will deliver the lecture.
