I’m in Pisa, participating to the kickoff meeting of the PRIN 2010 project “CINA”. Kickoff meetings are always the best moment of the projects-so many nice people, so many ideas… and not so many negative results yet.
Oggi ho presentato i corsi di laurea in Informatica e TWM ai maturandi del Marinelli. Chissà quanti ne ho spaventati 🙂
Per la prima volta ho usato Prezi per la presentazione, e devo dire che è uno strumento molto interessante. Ha notevoli potenzialità, e si discosta molto dai soliti Powerpoint e Keynote. E per questo è anche più difficile da usare…
Do you work on or with bigraphs? Do you want to learn about bigraphs? Then you have to participate to the Third International Workshop on Bigraphs (Bigraphs 2013), to be held at the IT University of Copenhagen on 16 February 2013.
Speakers are invited to submit an abstract of no more than two pages as a proposal for a talk to be given during the workshop. Any research related to bigraphs is within scope. Summaries of work in progress or intended future research are also welcome.
Deadline for submissions: 21 January 2013.
For more details, see the workshop web page.
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!
The Proceedings of MeCBIC 2012 are now online, and it turns out to be the centenary volume of EPTCS! 🙂
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!
After four quite intensive lectures, I’ve finished the PhD mini-course about Structured Operational Semantics for Probabilistic and Stochastic Processes. Nice class, very interested. Hoping that the students enjoyed attending it at least as much as I’ve enjoyed giving it!
The handouts are available here.
Today I’ve started the PhD mini-course about Structured Operational Semantics for Probabilistic and Stochastic Processes, at the IT University. I was pleasedly surprised to get ~20 students (also from DTU and DIKU)! Hoping to be not disappointing…
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??
