You may find it curious that I post the programme of a conference or workshop that is already over, but this one is special. Since it was planned as a surprise to Jos Uffink himself, I was morally obliged to remain silent until the conference is over. But now that it is, I would like to announce it nevertheless so that if you haven’t been in Utrecht last Friday, you can learn what you missed… and you may want to check out the conference website for some old photographs of Jos!
Here is the programme:
*European Goodbye Conference to Jos Uffink* to be held on Friday July 15th, 2011

Afterwards, drinks will be provided (from approx 17.30).
