I'm back from Flanders

I returned yesterday from Antwerp (or Antwerpen) Belgium, a very friendly town although the weather was generally cold and rainy. No Waterloo visit was possible, but we make a rapid train escape to see Bruges (Brugge), "The Venice of the North" and World Heritage Site of UNESCO. Below, you can see a picture of the Belfry or Belfort Tower at the Grot Markt (Market Square) , taken during a small truce in the weather.

Belfry Tower On the professional side, the CAC 2010 Conference, was very rewarding: many interesting lectures and posters and encounters with some other chemometricians. Incidentally, my postdoc visiting fellow, the Argentinian Fabricio D. Cid, won the Prize to the Best Poster of the meeting, and I was one of the co-authors of the communication!

Now the outcome of the freezed Connewitz battle is waiting.


  1. Welcome back! Shame you could not visit is one of my "things to do before I die"!

    Looking forward to seeing if the Austrians can grab a victory!

    A Waterloo visit is also one of my objectives!
    And the time for a decision at Connewitz is coming!
