Third DAI Day goes online: New dates and website announcement

Due to the current Covid-related restrictions in Italy, the Third DinAmicI Day (also abbreviated 3rd DAI Day) will take place online. It will also be split into two afternoons, December 17 and 18, 2020, instead of a single full day, as previously announced.

A website with the program of the event and all related information (including a link to download the poster) is up:

See you all online!

Third DAI DAY – save the date

Dear DinAmicI,

We’re happy to announce that the next DAI DAY will take place on December 5, 2020 in Lecce.

It is a tremendous occasion for you to attend dynamical seminars and the scientific assembly of the group, and to spend a weekend in a beautiful city.

We hope to see you all in Lecce, but in the difficult times we all are living, the event will also be streamed.

New information on the event will be posted by the organizers as soon as possible.
