Social Events

Sept. 8th: Ice-breaking Event

20:30-22:30. Interested people are invited to meet at the information desk in the Main Hall.

Sept. 9th: Gala Evening

NEW: Because of the high number of participants, the gala evening will be held in two different places.

People distribution between the two events will be determined in advance because the Council of Europe requires an exact list of participants’ names for security reasons. Sorry for this constraint. If any, exchange modalities will be announced at the conference.

The first (and initial) proposition takes place at the Council of Europe, in a smart historical ambience, preceded by a guided river boat tour (about 50 min). Capacity: 800 persons. The second proposition takes place at the Ancienne Douane, a famous typical Alsacian restaurant, and is preceded by a guided mini-train tour of Strasbourg (about 1 hour). Capacity is about 250 persons.
