The Borrel will be organised by the Dept. of Crystal and Structural Chemistry (Utrecht) and is subsidized by Nonius BV (Delft).

In the evening we plan to have dinner together in Utrecht (own expenses).  

Registration: We kindly ask you to register (preferably groupwise) before Thursday May 27 at m.hogenbirk@chem.uu.nl; early registration is needed for ordering the lunches! Please indicate whether you expect to stay for the Borrel and will join for dinner in the evening.

The registration fee (which includes lunch) is fl. 12.50 for NVK members and fl. 25 for non-NVK members.
