Update: Tilburg and Leiden combine forces
Dear Human Robot Personal Relationship Conference participant,
We are in a phase of transition considering the conference. The main reason is that there is a tremendous interest for the lecture by Professor Ishiguro in the Netherlands. He only will be in the Netherlands for one full day arriving Wednesday and leaving Friday. A conference on a simular topic has been scheduled in Leiden (june 11th) with an attendance of about 200 persons, i.e. the CHI-NL. The venue will be the in the Leiden University Faculty of Law of: the Kamerligh Onnes Gebouw (KOG).
Combining forces guarantees our conference more saturation. Therefore, we considered the transition of moving the conference from Tilburg to Leiden, and were successful in making the necessary arrangements. Thus, our conference will be in the KOG venue for June 11th and June 12th.
All changes will be communicated via our website. We understand that this change may cause some inconvenience at your part. We are aware of it and sincerely apologize for that and offer assistance in resolving your problems as far as we are able to do so. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact us with your personal questions.
Jaap van den Herik
Chair HRPR Conference
Please note that this programme is tentative.
