For several years now, students from all over the world have visited ISCOMS.

The Hosting and Logistics committee is responsible for not only the social programme, but for the accommodations, the City Tour, the Post Congress Tour and the screenplay during the congress as well.

The social programme is the perfect way to extend your social contacts. While enjoying dinners and informal drinks you can meet people from many different countries and cultures.

On Sunday, there will be a City Tour through the center of Groningen and a welcoming party afterwards. At this welcoming party there will be a pub quiz for both the participants and the housing providers. On Monday, we will enjoy a salsa workshop and due to the fact that will have a third congress day we will add a completely new social programme on Tuesday.

On Wednesday there will be a formal dinner with 350 participants. This beautiful dinner will be at an historical location in Groningen. We will conclude the last congress day on Thursday with the World Wide ISCOMS Night. At this party you can show everyone some great things your country has to offer by bringing your typical national snacks and by putting on your traditional clothing.

To finish off the excellent congress, there will be a Post Congress Tour on Friday. On this day, we will show you a piece of our beautiful country. Together with about 100 foreign participants we will enjoy a day full of fun to blow off some steam after an intense week full of science.

We, as the Hosting and Logistics committee, will provide you with options for accommodation during the congress. One of the options is ‘Staying with a Student’. This gives you the perfect opportunity to get a better view of what the city of Groningen has to offer. Furthermore, you can stay at an international student accommodation or we can give you advice on hostels or hotels.

We ensure you we will do everything to make this congress memorable. We hope you are as excited as we are and we are looking forward to see you at ISCOMS 2018!
