  <Programming> 2017 : The Art, Science, and Engineering of Programming

    April 3-6, 2017, Brussels, Belgium

We are excited to welcome you to <Programming> 2017, a new conference 
focused on everything to do with programming. It takes place at the 
Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium on April 3-6. The <Programming> 
conference is closely associated with the open-access journal "The Art, 
Science, and Engineering of Programming". The journal's first two 
issues form the conference's research track, which means you can freely 
access all papers presented at the conference before it even starts! 
Along with the research track, <Programming> 2017 features a program 
with two main keynotes, two symposia, eight workshops, a coding dojo, a 
demo track, and a student research competition.

To catch a glimpse of what <Programming> 2017 has to offer, feel free to

  About Brussels

Brussels is the capital of Belgium, and home to the headquarters of the 
European Union. Despite its European nature and all the different 
languages spoken on every street corner, Brussels still has a very 
"village-like" character. It's well known for its Grand-Place, its 
Atomium, its Manneken-Pis, its Gueuze and its Kriek, its waffles and its 
chocolates. Be sure to take some time off to soak up the special 
atmosphere of its many different districts: Take a stroll to Rue 
Dansaert, Halles Saint-Géry, and Place Sainte-Catherine. Head for 
Saint-Boniface, Châtelain, or Flagey. In other words, go ahead and 
relish Brussels, a fine and beautiful city to explore and discover.
