CT2013 Sydney, 7-13 July

The annual category theory conference begins tomorrow in Sydney.

I had planned to attend taking the opportunity to visit Australia after many years of absence. Unfortunately May and June were terrible months for our family with two of us in hospital and convalescence.

I managed with some difficulty to attend the conference in memory of Aurelio in Milan but not the long trip to Australia. The first time I made that trip was in the Orient Line ship Otranto in 1953 (from Sydney to London and back through the Suez canal visiting Ceylon, Aden, Naples and Marseille).

Not this year.
