The wonderful EME 2016 conference is still very much on our minds. That motivated us to move fast for EME 2018.
We can tell you that the EME 2018 conference will take place at Hotel Zuiderduin in Egmond aan Zee (the Netherlands). Dates will be August 16, 17, 18 and 19.
Thursday August 16: Excursion by bus: Dutch waterworks. This trip will be interesting for all as there is quite some technique involved in keeping our country dry and those waterworks are both impressive as well as beautiful!
Friday August 17: Excursion by bus: to PI9CAM We will visit the 25 m Dwingeloo dish (PI9CAM) but also the 14 dishes (25 m too) of the Westerbork array. Thís trip will be interesting for all too, because this trip will be organised in such a way that: a.. interested EME-ers have time to spend time at the big dish of PI9CAM and the 14 dishes of the Westerbork array; b.. for partners (who are invited as well!) the visit at the dishes will be shorter and on both locations there will be time to visit other things.
Saturday August 18: for the EME-ers: in the morning and afternoon: Lectures for partners: Excursion by bus ‘Typical Dutch’ For all: Closing dinner in the beach-pavilion on the beach!
Sunday August 19: for the EME-ers: in the morning: Lectures for partners: Trip in and around Egmond aan Zee. For all (around noon): Goodbye Lunch - an extended lunch for all to say our goodbyes.
Looking forward to see many of you in the Netherlands and at PI9CAM in 2018!
