IOB organizes alumni seminars both in Antwerp as well as in countries in the South . When an Antwerp-based seminar is organized ( i . e . in 2011 , 2012 , 2013 and 2016 ) a call for presentations is launched among all alumni and one IOB alumnus / a is selected and invited to come to Antwerp to present his / her work at IOB . In the South seminars , we do the inverse by inviting all alumni in the country ( or within travelling distance ) to come to the seminar and present their work . Previous alumni seminars were organized in Uganda and the Philippines .
In 2017 , an IOB alumni seminar will be organized in Tanzania . The exact timing and venue will still be communicated in due course , but for now , make sure you keep Sunday 20 August ( evening ) and Monday 21 August free . This seminar will consist of a social event ( reception & dinner ) on Sunday evening and for those interested several workshop training sessions and a poster reception is being organized on Monday . Further information will follow .
