The 4th NPCS Annual Conference 2020 is cancelled!
The Corona virus is hitting us all hard. Given the current situation and the fact that the RIVM expects things to get worse in the coming month, the Yearly NPCS (Thursday 16th April) conference is cancelled. Below you will find the original program.
While these are circumstances beyond our control, the NPCS team will work hard in making next year’s conference even better! And, we hope to see you there!
