Yesterday the kick-off of WCSF2023 took place at the Forum in Groningen, offering a stunning view of the city and a spectacular opening act by freestyle footballer Jasmijn Janssen. Chairman Koen van Lemmink extended his warm welcome to all participants from around the world. Cisca Wijmenga (Rector Magnificus at the University of Groningen) and Inge Jongman (municipal council member Groningen)  also expressed their wishes for an inspiring conference and a delightful stay in Groningen for all the participants.

Following a pleasant gathering accompanied by food and drinks, everyone retired for the night to get ready for the early conference opening on Wednesday morning.

We wish all participants an excellent conference experience.
