In the absence of a major international conference, the group tried something new this year: a one-week retreat in Italy. The idea was to focus on research strategy: to take stock of where various projects were heading, to set aside loads of time for creative thinking, and to plan out research for the coming years. We also ran a number of short workshops on various topics that are key to our research but which might not normally be covered in undergraduate courses. Throughout the week we kept to a reasonably strict regime: work started at 9am and finished at 8pm. Most of the photos below are from the post-8pm period, and also from our afternoon off in Siena.
