Unfortunately, we have decided not to organize a Belgian edition of Friends of Search in 2023. But not to worry, in honor of our 10th anniversary we are organizing an extra special Dutch edition: Friends of Search Fest. Belgian visitors are of course more than welcome. Join us on March 23, 2023, in de Kromhouthal in Amsterdam.
