As you know, Gerrit van Meer will say goodbye as Dean of the Faculty of Science as of 31 December 2017. During his seven-year tenure as Dean, Gerrit has worked for the faculty with great conviction and joy. Many will recall his personal engagement with the staff and the important role he has played in forging connections, both inside and outside the faculty.
The faculty would like to give colleagues from inside and outside the faculty an opportunity to say farewell to Gerrit as Dean. You are therefore cordially invited to the festive reception on Tuesday December 12 at 15.30 hour in the Vagant. Hope to see you there!

Delta ITP Triangle meetings: Holography
Time & Place: 10h00-17h00 in Brussels

Hi all,
It is our pleasure to announce the Brussels edition of our Holography@D-ITP meetings this year.
The event will take place at a special location: the City Hall of Brussels on "Grand Place » (Salle des Milices, entrance to the left of the « Lion’s Staircase »), January 19th 2018.
This event is part of a regular series of meetings with the objective of bringing together the theoretical physics communities in Amsterdam, Leiden, Utrecht, Groningen, Brussels (ULB and VUB) and Leuven.
The topic of this meeting is holography and its applications to different physical systems. We encourage researchers from different areas in theoretical physics to participate!
Hope to see you there.
Best regards, Nikolay Bobev, Geoffrey Compère, Ben Craps, Stéphane Detournay, Thomas Hertog
