The 29th Benelux Conference on Artificial Intelligence
November 8–9, 2017 in Groningen, The Netherlands
The conference will be held in Het Kasteel.
This Neo-Gothic building with the tower of Foucault and its famous pendulum, the hall with the geometric patterns and the Escher ceiling, the stairwell with the stained-glass windows, the Gothic pointed arch windows and the richly decorated stairwells are an architectural attraction, a museum in their own right.
In the late afternoon on Wednesday there will be a tour of (and up!) the Martinitoren, the 97-metre tower that still dominates the Groningen skyline. Afterwards the conference dinner will take place in 't Feithhuis, located in the very heart of the city centre.
The exact address of Het Kasteel is Melkweg 1, 9718 EP Groningen, the Netherlands.
