Plane issueFinally, the organisers would like to thank Nicolas Barthelemy who, despite his best efforts, was unable to attend the meeting in person due to a plane situation beyond his control (see the photo for a clue as to what this was) but we are grateful that he was able to join us to give his presentation via a last minute webinar!
