Dear Colleagues: Greetings!


I am pleased to report to you that we have had a very successful conference, ICEE-2012, last month in Turku, Finland. What a wonderful get-together for participants from over 35 countries! My thanks go the team in Turku, Finland, led by Prof. Janne Roslof, for their hard work. Their success has been reflected in the many positive comments I have received about the conference. When you have a chance, please browse through the photos posted recently in the conference website (please click).


It is now time for us to look to the future. As was announced in Turku, the year 2013 will be the Year of Africa for the iNEER community as we meet in Morocco in June and in Cape Town in December. In 2014, we will meet in Latvia and the year following, in 2015, we will assemble in Croatia. Here are the details:
