Thursday April 18

Thursday will be the intellectually most demanding day of the conference week (see programme). So make sure going to bed early the night before and having a decent breakfast in the morning.
Registration desk and coffee bar open at 08:15, welcoming you to the venue. Being aware that conferences are only as good as their coffee breaks, we foresaw these to be longer than usual, allowing for discussions, networking and digesting the input from the sessions.
The scientific programme will end no later than 18:00, and there will be a bus transfer from Flonk hotel to (near) Schimmelpenninck Huys leaving at 18:30, where we will have our well-deserved conference dinner. Please note that we have not organized busses going back to the hotel. You can find your way back with the help of 9292.nl. Taxis and small busses can be ordered at Taxi: Arriva +31 (0)513 655 855.

Friday April 19

The last conference day will start at 09:00 in the full plenum (no parallel sessions on Friday). After the first and only coffee break of the day, we will try and jointly wrap up the conference, compile the lessons learned, identify the progress being made and the steps that need to be undertaken so we can make good progress until the next Swimway conference. For this, we need each and everyone in the room, so please make sure to plan your departure only AFTER lunch.
