Gothenburg Summit in Pictures and in Words

Gothenburg summit of is4si 2017 is over. What remains is to systematize the variety of impressions in pictures and words. If you have some special photos you want to share, send them to Gordana.

And then of course, the huge work will start soon on publication of full articles in variety of journals and books, see http://is4si-2017.org/publications/

We will be back soon with more information.

But first we celebrate summer here in Gothenburg, as today it is Midsummer Eve.
