Dear friends,

on Friday afternoon, November 29, there will be a special symposium in honor of Prof. Mehls who has celebrated his 80th birthday this year. Moreover, our 4C study is turning 10 years, so we have two reasons to celebrate! The symposium will be held in the Print Media Academy right across Heidelberg train station. In the evening all attendees are kindly invited to the "birthday dinner" at the Goldener Falke restaurant at the market square.    

The ESCAPE network meeting will then take place on Saturday, November 30th from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm. As usual, this event is by invitation only. The preliminary agenda of the two meeting days can be found below.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Franz Schaefer and Andre Durudas
