Invited Professors



Registration for the quarter (at the bottom of this page) will allow you to be informed of the holding of the various events during the semester, in particular for the courses (schedules, zoom links, etc.). For logistic reasons, registration for the quarter does not give you an automatic registration for the workshops, so please also register for each workshop you wish to attend.
