Great line-up, sound very interesting (although I wouldn’t have put Ilona Fekete’s lecture just before lunch).

Do you know, Adam, if they plan to put in print an "Actes du Colloque", a selection of some of the presentations to be made at the conference?



Nevermind :

Furthermore, to make the new results accessible to a wider audience, we are planning to publish the best, and possibly all, papers of the workshop in a collected volume in English.
