Tomorrow morning, I am off to India, first for a week of touring in Rajasthan, starting with the city Jaipur, and nearby states, then for the ISBA conference in Varanasi (Bénarés) organised by Satyanshu Upadhyay and the DST Centre for Interdisciplinary Mathematical Sciences at the Banaras Hindu University. The list of speakers and the program of the conference is quite impressive and I am looking very much attending this conference (as well as the first leg of the trip, of course). (I hope to get enough broadband and to keep my camera long enough to post a few pictures along the way…)
