Dear Nuria,

I did not know that you retired plus I did not know I would see Youla, 
Tziana, Lynda and many other colleagues that I had met at various 
meetings. This project looks like a realization of our initial dreams 
when we established ACM-W Europe.
It is a 4 year project and I am seure I will have a chance to meet with 
all of you virtually or face-to-face at a point.

Best wishes.

>>>     Thank you very much for your support!
