IMT @ Lucca

Just spent some days visiting the SysMA group at IMT, Lucca. A quite interesting environment indeed… Since it is a PhD-only institute, it is smaller than standard universities, but nevertheless very active! And I liked the multidisciplinary atmosphere (sciences, economics, cultural heritage, politics, …).
And the city is nice, of course–even with this unusal fog!

Starting something similar is hard, and keeping it growing and improving is harder. So keep up the good work, guys!

Back to the past

So now I’m ready to leave to Italy. Had a really great time in CPH. Cool city, nice students, great colleagues. Unfortunately I’ve left lots of work that needs to be terminated, so… I’ll be back!

CONCUR & MeCBIC 2012


Back from Newcastle upon Tyne (see pic), for a (too short) participation to CONCUR and MeCBIC. Only two days, but the quality of talks I’ve attended was great. Met so many ol’ friends. And the city was also nice and lively (!), and the weather was also good.  What else could I ask??
