For more details of the events, click here for the first, and here for the second and third workshops. To register, email info(at)stridonium(dot)com.

Those traveling from farther afield may be interested to know that the workshops are Sunday/Monday arrangements, with an (optional) networking dinner for those who want to arrive on Sunday and stay overnight, followed by the workshop itself on the Monday (breakfast and lunch are included). The overnight option only applies as long as rooms are available, so early registration is recommended.

The organizers tell me that each of these courses has been awarded 6 CPD points by the Dutch Bureau BTV and 6 ATA CE points.
