[UPDATE: All dinner slots announced below were quickly taken; if you’d like to be on the waitlist please write a comment on this post or drop us a line] 

As announced yesterday, standard registration for the conference will start on Friday at This is the link that you should use:

As an exception, tomorrow at 10 a.m. we will be releasing (via the same link) 40 advance tickets for those people who may also be interested in joining us for a special post-conference dinner [not organized by the blog and not part of the conference]

A group of people we know have recently started organizing Syrian fundraising dinners cooked by Syrian asylum seekers as part of a project to integrate refugees into the labour market. We attended once and they cooked a delicious Maqluba (pictured above; rice, eggplant and pine-nuts; this may be the best picture ever featuring on the blog…)

The conference will be finishing at 18.30 p.m.  A couple of beers will be inevitable. And then at 20 p.m we will be moving to Square Ambiorix 50 (Metro Schuman) for dinner. The conference ticket remains free of charge, but the idea is that everyone attending dinner contributes to the project with a 30 euro donation (no advance payment needed; for some reason they assume you’re trustworthy…). The dinner should be a bit like the blog, not fancy and not too serious but convivial. Pablo and I will be supplying drinks to further foster conviviality…
