Social Program

Welcome reception

A welcome reception (walking dinner) will be organized on June 14th, 2010, 20:00 at the Floreal


The excursion will take place on June, Wednesday 16th, 2010 in the afternoon, and we will go to visit Bouillon.

Known as the "Pearl of the Semois valley", Bouillon is without doubt the most important and most attractive tourist centre of the Semois valley. We will have a guided visit of it's fortified medieval castle, perfectly preserved and assist to an falconry intermezzo.

The Archeoscope© "Godefroid de Bouillon" will transport us on an emotional journey through space and time into the heart of the first Crusade. The life and destiny of Duke Godfrey and his trip to Jerusalem are brought to life with modern audio-visual technology, special effects and oudstanding sets. The ancien convent of the Sepulcrines, where the archeoscope is situated, dates back to the beginning of the 17th century, and belongs to the order of the Saint-Sepulcre, founded in Jerusalem by Godfrey of Bouillon in 1099. More information is available on the Archeoscope© website.

Conference dinner

The conference dinner will be organized on June, Thursday 17th, 2010 in the evening. A bus will depart at 19:20 and bring us to the dinner place.

We go to Hostellerie La Claire Fontaine in green surroundings and nestled in a hollow of a valley.

Located in the vicinity of the town of La Roche, the restaurant combines regional charm and gastronomy.
