please write to seminars (at) if you are interested in joining us.

We will have the possibility of some evening sessions on Saturday and Sunday, but to get an idea of what the schedule will be, you can have a look at our September session.

We should also note that we are making arrangements to stream the seminar online, so those who are not able to attend can follow and hopefully still participation.

It has been 6 years now since we have been initiating various events, activities and discussions. We have over this time sought opportunities to find partners in organizing small colloquia, workshops, and seminars which taken on a subject in a more focused manner. This collaboration with Brian is further development of this desire for a more concentrated involvement and discussion around a specific set of questions.

We completed the September session and looking forward to part 2. Of course, the second session will include new participants as well as individuals who were able to joing for part 1.
