Following in our purpose of stimulate inputs from a broader audience before the meeting of the 6th ICPC,
Im posting today the titles scheduled for the Morning Plenary Sections, as it is for while, without the name of the speakers, quite all confirmed. I need a final word from the chairman of the Scientific Committee, to identify them.
The titles meanwhile may be already a stimulus for thinking and to receive contributions: questions, suggestions of emphasis or priorities.
You are welcome to add a comment to this blog (see at bottom) or to send a message to my address AAchutti on any of these topics.
