As I anticipated earlier, we’re now able to open registration for our Summer time College in Florence (I used to be ready for UCL to arrange the registration system and thought it might take for much longer than it truly did $-$ so effectively executed UCL!).

We’ll in all probability have a couple of adjustments right here and there within the timetable $-$ we’re pondering of introducing some new matters and I feel I will definitely merge a few my intro lectures, to go away a while for these… 

Nothing is mounted but and we’re within the means of deliberating all of the adjustments $-$ however I will submit as quickly as now we have a clearer plan for the revised timetable.

This is the advert (which I’ve despatched out to some related mailing listing, additionally).
