I am back from sabbatical in Poland, eager to share my experiences with a completely different educational system. Over the last couple of years we had some decline in Theorynet participation, so I would like to bring back the enthusiasm and open discussion on new directions. I think that an early Fall meeting would be a great opportunity to get together and also to meet new colleagues/associates, so please bring them in. Of course don’t forget to mention generous stipends J and demo equipment as incentives. The meeting will be held on Saturday next week, September 16 at 10:00, in the usual place on NEU campus (will distribute directions next week). I am looking forward to seeing all of you.
