This year, the CEIR team once again took part in the annual ENGAGE User Group conference and provided insights into their current research projects.

Theo Heselmans invited us to participate and this was his last event as the Chair of the ENGAGE User Group before handing over the Chairperson role to his two successors. The conference location was “Handelsbeurs”, the historic stock exchange in Antwerp, Belgium, an impressive venue that attracted even more conference participants than in previous years.
