Location and venue

The symposium is located on the boulevard of Egmond aan Zee, a panoramic location only 10 meters away from one of the most beautiful beaches in The Netherlands. An ARTscientific Symposium ticket includes all talks and workshops, welcome coffee/tea, 2 times breakfast, lunch and dinner and a 2-night stay at the symposium's location: Golfzang Strandhotel. Warm colors, fresh grass, wood, local modern art, and a natural design creates a pleasant and inspiring environment to follow workshops during the day and to socialize in the evening. Within 500 meters of the hotel, you will find the town center, the beach, dunes, and woods that are ideal for walking or cycling.
