There’s still one more week before the closing date, so if you haven’t submitted anything yet you may want to give it a try yourself. Surely you have some good ideas that haven’t yet been published. Keep us posted about your progress!

I don’t know about you, but I’m one of those that actually enjoy writing scientific papers. And right now in freezing cold Scandinavia, the thought of going to the warm and beautiful Italy in the summer is a major source of additional inspiration for writing 😉

Lots of potential for interesting discussions, don’t you think? Now you have a few days to prepare your mind …
