It is with great regret that we have to inform you that Jos Baetens retirement symposium, scheduled for 1 October, has been cancelled because of tighter coronavirus restrictions in the Netherlands.
Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) of the NWO Institute Organisation and the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) of the University of Amsterdam organize a symposium on the occasion of the retirement of Jos Baeten as general director of CWI and professor of theory of computing of ILLC on Thursday 1 October 2020.
Due to restrictions to curb the spread of the coronavirus, such as social distancing, space is limited at the venue. In order to comply with these restrictions, only a limited number of attendees are allowed. CWI has sent personal invitations to those who are selected to attend the symposium.
