EXRS-2021 has been postponed with one year, to become EXRS-2022.

In agreement with the International Advisory Committee, we have decided to postpone EXRS with another year. EXRS-2022 will take place in Bruges, Belgium from Sunday 26 June to Friday 1 July 2022. All abstracts previously submitted in the Easy Chair system remain valid and can be edited/adapted/with drawn  as you see fit. 

Koen Janssens, on behalf of the local organizers.

The University of Antwerp (AXES group), together with the University of Ghent (XMI Group) and the University of Liege (CEA group) has the pleasure of inviting you to the 2022 edition of EXRS. The 30th edition of this biannual conference will take place in the historic city centre of Bruges (Belgium), which is listed as UNESCO world heritage. 

The conference will take place in the medieval Saint John's Hospital (Oud Sint-Jan), one of the oldest European infirmaries. This is located in the heart of the city, close to the Cathedral and at walking distance to various heritage sites such as the Groeningemuseum, the Chapel of the Holy Blood, the Belfry, the Beguinage, etc.

According to UNESCO, Bruges (Brugge in Flemish) is an outstanding example of a medieval settlement, which has maintained its historic fabric over the centuries, with various original Gothic constructions forming the town's identity.  

In the 15th century, Bruges was the cradle of the Flemish Primitives and a centre of patronage and painting for artists such as Jan van Eyck and Hans Memling. Many of their works were exported and influenced painting styles all over Europe. Exceptionally important collections have remained in the city until today.

On behalf of the organising committee, we look forward to seeing you in Bruges!
