The ProbGen17 conference dinner will take place on Tuesday, 19 September, at Centralværkstedet, located close to the city centre and Hotel Comwell. 

Centralværkstedet is an old railway workshop dating back to 1862. For many years it was one of the most important workplaces in Aarhus. The workshop was closed in 2009 and in 2012 the building was re-established as place for events. It’s well known for its great setting, atmosphere, food and wine.

Buses will be departing from Moesgaard taking you to the conference dinner. For details and time, please see the conference program.
