On 14-15 September 2017, the Human Computation Community in the Netherlands (HComp-NL), supported by 4TU-NIRICT,  is organising a series of events at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, in conjunction with the inaugural lecture of Prof. Dr. Lora Aroyo entitled "Data Science with Humans in the Loop”. You are cordially invited to participate in all of them. Below you can find the detailed program and locations.                

Inaugural lecture, Prof. Dr. Lora Aroyo
Location: Main Building, Aula, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
