<Programming> 2017

3-6 April 2017
Brussels

We are excited to welcome you to <Programming> 2017, a new conference focused on everything to do with programming. It takes place at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium on April 3-6. The <Programming> conference is closely associated with the open-access journal "The Art, Science, and Engineering of Programming".

The journal's first two issues form the conference's research track, which means you can freely access all papers presented at the conference before it even starts! Along with the research track, <Programming> 2017 features a program with two main keynotes, two symposia, eight workshops, a coding dojo, a demo track, and a student research competition.

To catch a glimpse of what <Programming> 2017 has to offer, feel free to have a look at our overview video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GM_hLNW4ioE

About Brussels

Brussels is the capital of Belgium, and home to the headquarters of the European Union. Despite its European nature and all the different languages spoken on every street corner, Brussels still has a very "village-like" character. It's well known for its Grand-Place, its Atomium, its Manneken-Pis, its Gueuze and its Kriek, its waffles and its chocolates. Be sure to take some time off to soak up the special atmosphere of its many different districts: Take a stroll to Rue Dansaert, Halles Saint-Géry, and Place Sainte-Catherine. Head for Saint-Boniface, Châtelain, or Flagey. In other words, go ahead and relish Brussels, a fine and beautiful city to explore and discover.
