Between September 22nd and 24th 2016 the University of Modena and Reggio Emiglia welcomed us to sunny Modena for a well visited conference.

The conference kicked off with a welcoming reception at the fascinating museum of Enseo Ferrari. We were treated with some nice food and drinks and got to enjoy both the company of friends from all over the world and the wonderful designed Ferraris on display.

Thursday through Saturday was all about conferencing with lots of informal meetings in the hallways of the University.

Expect more information in a couple of days, together with some more photos from the event. In the mean time, here are some quick photos to enjoy.

Regarding the Earthquake in Italy

We have all been shocked by the terrible news about the Earthquake in central parts of Italy. Our thoughts goes out to those affected by this tragedy.

If you wonder about the upcoming conference in Modena we can assure you that nothing has changed. The city of Modena (and the entire region) is far away (4-5 hours by car) from the earthquake area and has not been affected. The Italian organisers has also assured us that the University itself is earthquake proof certified with modern buildings.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the organisers. Contact information can be found here: http://www.eda2016.unimore.it/contact

We hope to see you all in Modena.
