WPCF 2017 internal organisation

What is written below assumes that we will be expecting around 100 participants. This is a reasonable assumption, considering that the average participation (e.g. Frankfurt, Catania, Warsaw) is aropund 80 people and Amsterdam is probably more attractive and easy place to reach.


WPCF will take place at Nikhef between the 12th (i.e. Monday) and the 16th (i.e. Friday) of June 2017. We will start at 14:00 on Monday and finish before lunch on Friday.

Registration and payment

We can do is aim for an early registration of 280€ (or more?) and a late registration with 320€ (or more?). The relevant numbers for 2013 (i.e. Catania, Italy) was 220€, in 2014 (i.e. Gyongyos in Hungary, with extra travel time from Budapest) was 280€ and 320€ for early and late registrations, respectively. Last time (i.e. Warsaw, Poland) the numbers were 280€ and 320€ for early and late registrations, respectively, but they also included a fee of 140€ for students.

Registration will be done mainly online, via bank transfer. The relevant information will be provided online on the web site. We should provide the possibility for onsite payment as well. We will receive cash and see if we can also accept credit card payments.

Todo: See which account we will use, check for credit card usage, receipts etc.

The workshop will take place in Z011

Todo: Book the room between the 12th and the 16th of June 2017. Note that the 12th and the 16th are half-days!!!

Workshop material

We could offer a typical bag or an umbrella or a raincoat. Alternatively, we could check whether GVB offers weekly passes for trams, metro and trains.

Todo: Check with GVB, get an offer for bags or umbrellas or a raincoats

Person responsible: Paul Kuijer

Web page

We will use indico for the workshop web page. We could either use the one at CERN and host it there (advantage: newer version that can provide various features), or our own at Nikhef which is based on an older version and might not provide all needed functionalities (I need to check).

Todo: Make list of things needed for the webpage and check if the local indico functionalities are sufficient

Person responsible: Panos Christakoglou

Reception hall

The idea would be to plan a small reception with drinks and snacks right after the end of the afternoon session on Monday. We can use either the hall right outside Z011 or the room right next to it.

Todo: Check if either of the two options are available free of charge (i.e. the space). Get an offer from the catering service of CWI (?).
