Ciao Milena, hai capito bene, abito in California das parecchi anni, il Premio che stiamo organizzando che vedi nella mia pagina si svolgera' a Milano il 18 giugno ma io purtrtoppo non saro' presente. Chissa', magari l'anno prossimo.
Se nel frattempo tu vieni in California fammi sapere, mi piacerebbe incontrarti!
I hear you and Ellen and some others took a great boat tour and ate at an Armenian restaurant - sorry I missed it, I had to return because my brother was renewing his vows after 30 years of marriage and there was a large reunion party afterward of my family. I would love to get to Amsterdam, but it depends on what kind of year we have here. So far, so good, so I'll keep my fingers crossed ... Best, Claudia
Ciào Milena: Congrats again on receiving the SCIP Fellows Award in Chicago! It was so nice to be there with you in shared celebration when you received it. I wish for you every continuing success and will look forward to many interactions with you in the years ahead as you continue to do wonderful things for the CI community in Europe and beyond. Kindest regards, Craig
Milena, brilliant to see you here. Likewise, I look forward to meeting up in Rome, 20-22nd October for the 13th European SCIP Summit. Given the content and its structure from Bad Nauheim, it looks to be an exciting event indeed.
