Monday 28 September


Arrival and registration of Congress participants at Hotel Jakarta.

A Congress Desk will be staffed in the lobby of Hotel Jakarta throughout the Congress.

Hotel Jakarta will be the Congress Headquarters: it’s located on an island in the river named the IJ.

This 4-star hotel is the most ecologically sustainable, greenest hotel in the city. It is brand new, but it cherishes the history of its location: from this spot the great passenger ships used to sail to the Dutch Indies.

We have reserved a number of rooms in this hotel at a reduced rate.


In the evening we invite you to an informal welcome buffet.

Dinner in the Kompaszaal (Compass Room), with a splendid view over the river IJ.

The Kompaszaal is the former departure hall of the Royal Dutch Steamship Company. After shipping left, squatters moved in and saved the place from demolition. Our transportation will be by canal boat.
