We have a busy year ahead of us in 2014! The key event will be the conference in Rome in
June – by the time this issue of JEAHIL is published, registration will be open, and I hope to see you in Rome. Since I participated in the IPC, I know already that there will be a great variety of excellent presentations and posters. Maurella Della Seta and Franco Toni and their teams have prepared a fantastic conference programme that I am certain will be enjoyable and successful. In this letter I’d like to highlight a few other things that need your participation this year.
