Social programme

Monday the 5th of June 2017

If you are already in Groningen on Monday and you cannot wait to start your ISCOMS experience, you can attend a city tour through the historic city centre of Groningen in the evening. The tour ends at a local pub in the city centre, where the Welcoming Night will take place. At this pub, we will have some drinks and you can join the pub quiz! This night is the perfect opportunity to meet and mingle with other participants, the ISCOMS Executive Board, the Organising Committee and the First Year Crew. You are always welcome to join the Welcoming Night, regardless of your participation on the city tour.

Most of the presenting participants will arrive on Tuesday and after registering you will have the opportunity to participate in the pre-course of the congress. You can also choose to discover our beautiful city and have a look in the UMCG on your own occasion. If you have registered for the pre-course, the Organising Committee will drop you off at Plaza Danza for a nice supper and a salsa dancing workshop!

After the first day of the congress, a formal dinner is organised at one of the finest locations in Groningen, the historical ‘Der Aa-Kerk’, which will be transformed into a fancy dining room with a capacity of up to 350 people. Bring your most elegant dress or best suit to look amazing that night! An exquisite three-course dinner will be served, with choice for a meat or a vegetarian dish.

After the closing ceremony on the last day of the congress, the memorable World Wide ISCOMS Night at Huize Maas will kick off with a buffet, where after the great party will start. This night is all about the different traditions of the countries represented at ISCOMS. So, dress up in traditional clothes, bring a traditional snack and bring music which is representative for your country (this can easily be done by providing an USB-stick with the music) and the DJ will take care of the rest.
