Updates after the earthquake on August 24

Dear ISSAOS participant,

as you might have heard from the news, Central Italy was hit by a series of earthquakes last night, two of which were strong enough to cause damage and life losses (the sad count is 37 at the moment).
The earthquakes were felt also in L’Aquila, but there are currently no reported damges to the structures or interruption of services (e.g. we are regularly in the office this morning). The place most affected in the sorrounding is the small village of Antrodoco, about 40 km on the west, where also some life losses are also unfortunately reported.
According to our information the situation is safe and there is no foreseen re-sheduling of the summer school. Moreover, L’Aquila is now regarded as one of the safest cities, because of the major earthquake that hit the place in 2009, and it is actually now getting ready to house the displaced people from nearby damaged towns.
With best wishes,

ISSAOS 2016 Registration now open!

The registration to ISSAOS 2016 is now open!

In the pre-registration phase (ended on February 29, 2016) we received a substantial amount of submissions, and we will have to cap the number of attendants due to limited capacity of the location and of the computer resources for the practical sessions.

You’re thus encouraged to complete the registration at your earliest convenience! Please carefully read the instructions given in the registration page.

Looking forward to seeing you in L’Aquila to enjoy this exciting event!
