23 October 2009, NAP-Dag 2009

Date: Friday 23 October 2009

NAP is the abbreviation of Nieuw Amsterdams Peil and this day is meant for junior researchers to present their (ongoing) research. The NAPdag will be a full day of presentations, including social events like having lunch and drinks afterwards.

Because of the growing collaboration between the two research institutes, there will be presentations of PhD's from the ACLC as well as from the ILLC. Attendance is free, but if you wish to join the (free) lunch, please send an email to the organizers.
