Pages at the site had recently been loading very slowly. While trying to find the cause of the problem I switched to a simpler newer theme. Performance is now back to normal, although the problem may have been a link to a non-responding RSS feed rather than with the theme.

Ideas are welcome!

The book of abstracts is available as a pdf file. General Assembly held at Pécs The minutes from the General Assembly are also available as a pdf file. The rules were amended by the General Assembly, and the updated version has replaced the one drafted in 2014. Some members from the previous Management Group plus new members were elected for a two-year term. The newly elected …
I have received this message from ESP through Francesco Ghetti. I have been in touch with Francesco and our conference is eligible for this support. This does not mean any assurance of funding but it looks like a good opportunity for those in need of funding to send an application.

Our mailing lists should be now working. If you have not received a welcome message please send a message to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org. The whole site has been transferred to a different server. (A webhotel from a different provider called webbinen.net.) This has also decreased the page load delays that the site has had rather frequently. As the domain names have been transferred no visible signs of the change except for possible improvement in performance are expected. If you experience slower page loads or find broken links or other problems in the site please report them to mailto:email@example.com.
