All Panel sessions will take place in rooms marked F. Conference Welcome, Conference Keynotes, book release, poster presentations and the Closing Roundtable will all take place in the Lichthof.

The optional conference dinner takes place at 19:00 on Friday at Bona'me, a turkish kitchen. Any costs incurred at the dinner will need to be covered by the individual. It serves great food, has a very social atmosphere and costs roughly €8-16 per person.
