Programme

The programme of the NMC comprises four plenary lectures by prominent, parallel sessions organised by the mathematics clusters and the Gravitation Programmes NETWORKS and Quantum Sorftware Consortium. In addition, the program has many interesting shorter meetings and sessions: speed-dating with industry, a strategy session on policy aspects and a PhD poster prize.

On the second day also “Docentendag” for high school teachers will take place.
