EXARC Conferences, Meetings and Workshops

The virtual world is very important for EXARC, but nothing beats meeting other members in person - people with similar professional interests and backgrounds. EXARC regularly organises conferences offering a platform from which to present yourself and your activities / research, but also a place for more informal exchanges of experience. Those conferences and meetings are open for both members and non members. Besides our own conferences, EXARC often co-hosts conferences or sessions in many different countries.
