Seminar is over!

The seminar proved to be great success, both in terms of attendance, the quality of paper presentations, and intensity of discussions. There was uniform feedback from the participants that the seminar format worked very well, and everyone hoped for this tradition of discussion oriented seminars to continue. There was also some talk about possible joint publications of some of the draft papers, but this is something we need to think and plan more later. – Many thanks for everyone in the organizing team and to the keynote, commentators and to all participants!


Updates, social program

There are few minor changes and updates in the seminar program. There is also now a social program page – welcome to join us for a beer in Restaurant Plevna in Sunday!
