Annual Meeting 2020 on Causality and Complexity

On March 12th, 2020, we hosted the annual meeting with members and non-members from our society, enjoyed five talks and proceeding discussions, congratulated four award winners, and had a lovely dinner together. We thank all speakers, both online and onsite and all the attendants.
We hope to see you all again in the next year. In the meantime, we will keep you updated via our newsletter. You can also follow us on social media: Twitter, Linkedin or Facebook.

Here is the announcement of the meeting along with the Letter from the President published in Stator volume 21.


Here is a selection of photos from the VVSOR Annual Meeting 2020. Thanks to our photographer Michiel Ton.
