Closing Workshop “Norms in Knowledge” project

Information on the project can be found on the project page at the department’s website

We invite those who are interested in the topic to join us for this event. There is no fee for this conference. We offer you the meals during the program, but you will have to cover your own travel and lodging costs. We can advise you on hotels in Eindhoven. Only if the number of people that express their interest becomes too large for us to handle the workshop practically, we will have to disappoint people who sent their expression of interest later than others.
