Francesca just called our attention to this conference which has an interesting list of speakers as well as a graphically beautiful announcement.

Piombino is a restored Renaissance castle town on the coast south of Livorno

============================

Even though the conference is 3 months in the future, a surprising number of the invited speakers have already announced the titles of their talks. I was interested to see who was invited and what they have chosen to talk about. Francesca already mentioned a number of these names and lecture-titles.
