Happy summer & upgrade of the Aegeus website!

We would like to inform you that the Aegeus website is under upgrade. The upgrade will be completed by autumn 2014. As a consequence, our website will not be updated, except for the sections LECTURES and NEWS. Also, due to our heavy workload, the next full newsletter will be sent out once the upgrade of the website is completed. Brief notices, however, will continue to be sent via email.
