Syndicate: SYMPOSIUM: After the Wall 15-16 October

dear friends,
below is the information about the symposium and the syndicate meeting in
stockholm next week. due to programme changes in the symposium (which now
starts in the morning), we shifted the syndicate meeting to the evening
[18.00-19.30] both for the closed meeting on friday and the public
presentations on saturday. we may need some improvisation on the spot - and
would welcome the preparation of sandwiches and drinks by the Moderna
Museet nudge nudge - but like this it should work.
greetings and have a good trip,
