to turin for a conference

to turin for a conference

This morning i left venice for turin. It was a 400 km drive on the a4. I an here for the 0th european conference on complex systems. As peter, who is not coming, explained me: it shall only have invited talks, and it should set the stage for a mighty conference in europe next year. As the usa government is giving its back to theoretical research, so europe is stepping forward to carry the flame. Already many of my colleagues don't dream any more to study in the us. And those that are in the usa seem quite happy to leave for europe or canada or australia.
Still it is quite ironic that the ground for next years complex system conferences is being laid from italy, whose berlusconian-peronistic-right wing government had so much damaged academic research. Following the us 'in all that is evil'.
So, i am in turin right now. I am in my home, yet i have not a clue where is my home respect to everything else.
