After several years of collocation with ICT.OPEN, the Dutch computing and computer science community has decided to also host an independent annual conference, with an enlarged and more international scope. The goal of this event is to provide a meeting space for research and industry ideas in the area of computing and computer science, for a community we estimate at a few hundred nationally and a few thousand internationally. In this first edition, the conference will focus on community building, providing a forum to discuss ongoing projects for both senior researchers and experienced engineers, and Ph.D. and M.Sc. students in the Netherlands.

The conference lasts three days and focuses on the major research and practice themes related to computing and computer science. We envision a diverse program, from keynotes on advanced topics to project overviews emphasizing the strengths of Dutch and international IT projects, from presentations from Ph.D. and M.Sc. students to tutorials on building a career in computing and computer science.

This first edition is organized as a retreat: consider asking the organizers for a Birds-of-a-Feather meeting or a session on your interests.
