To kick off LIMSC we will visit the most famous student pubs in Leiden. This way, you can meet your fellow LIMSC participants while having a drink and get an impression of the student atmosphere in Leiden!
Our tour will take us through the Golden age, during which the trade, science and art in the Netherlands were on a peak. Through the Dutch fight against sickness, the rising water that could flood our land and the big questions of science. The museum has an amazing collection of the old microscope invented by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, an dialysis machine of 1943 and so much more. So, come and take a tour with us through the old scientific discoveries and be inspired by them!
To let you see the most interesting parts of Leiden and to show you some of its history, we organised a scavenger hunt trough the city. It will give you an opportunity to get to know some of the other participants, while you try to be the quickest team to solve the riddles and find your way through this beautiful city.
This dinner gives you the opportunity to taste typical Dutch food. This is the perfect way to start the cultural evening, so you can get to know the Dutch culture completely.
This evening will be dedicated to give you the opportunity to get to know the Dutch culture. There will be multiple workshops you can attend and the evening will be ended with a pubquiz. It will be held in the beautiful museum of Oudheden.
After the first scientific day come dine with us in style. During the dinner you will have the opportunity to speak with your fellow participants about the research they presented that day or you can speak to one of the guest speakers that inspired you during their talk. The location is the Level building, this is next to the LUMC and the dining hall has a glass wall, so you will have a beautiful view.
You can have dinner before closing the final & closing ceremony. This will be the last time we dine together in Leiden.
So come and enjoy a nice dinner with us on location before the finals of LIMSC 2019!
A returning classic: our final party! Come and dance with us, your fellow participants and other students of Leiden after all the scientific events. We can close off the congress with an energetic party and dance the night away, while making even more amazing memories and friends. We hope to see you there!
During the conference we have tried to give you the opportunity to get to know Leiden a little better. During our post conference tour we will take you to Amsterdam, so you can see a little more of the Netherlands. We will take you on a boat trip through the beautiful canals during which you will get a nice lunch. Then we will split the group and go to an inspiring museum. Then you will have some free time to buy souvenirs, if you like. Afterwards we will be driven back to the LUMC, but it is also possible tostay in Amsterdam.
