Information about DAPDI 2014

When?
The date for DAPDI this year is from the 21st until the 25th of July. Therefore it is one of the last opportunities to train for the European University Debating Championships.

Where?
As always, DAPDI will be held in Rotterdam, well known for its modern architecture and for having the largest port in Europe. In fact, Rotterdam is featured by Rough Guides as one of the

Rotterdam is well connected to the Dutch railway network (including direct connections to Schiphol airport near Amsterdam) and can be accessed by plane at Rotterdam The Hague airport.

 

Program?
This year's program naturally includes 3 days of debate workshops and a 2 day tournament. The evening program will feature great food in restaurants, a barbecue dinner, a pub crawl, a karaoke night, a costume party and generally a whole lot of drinking, dancing, and partying. The exact program will be anounced later.

Crash?
We are still busy trying to get the best possible accommodation for you. However, you can be sure that if you register in time, crash will be available for you if you need it.

- Kate Brooks,
- Daniel Bregman,
- Greg Farquhar,

How much does it cost?
