ABC in Helsinki, Stockholm, and in between [a.k.a., ABCruise]

As mentioned in a previous post, I had not pursued actively the organisation of an “ABC in…” workshop this year. I am thus very grateful to Jukka Corander, Samuel Kaski, Ritabrata Dutta, Michael Gutmann, from Helsinki, to have organised the next “ABC in…” workshop in Helsinki in the most possible exotic way, namely aboard a cruise ship going between Helsinki and Stockholm, on the Baltic Sea. Hence the appropriate ABCruise nickname. It will take place from May 16 to May 18, allowing for flying [from European cities] to Helsinki on the 16th and back from Helsinki on the 18th! While this may sound an inappropriate location for a meeting, we are constructing a complete scientific program with two days of talks [with a noon break in Stockholm], posters, and a total registration fee of 200€, including cabin and meals! (Which is clearly cheaper than having the same meeting on firm ground.) So, to all ‘Og’s readers interested in ABC topics, secure those dates in your agenda and keep posted for incoming updates on the program and the opening of registration.
