16th Summer Conference, Mir, 2004
Janos is taking his time writing up his amazing adventure.
This year, the conference was held in an arts school beside Mir Castle.
Everything was located in one building, so we went outside only for tea. This
provided a homely touch to the conference. Everyone was just so friendly,
The conference was driven by the willpower to research rather than competition.
On the first day, we were presented with a few projects: series of connected
tasks. We were to choose one or two of them to work on during the week.
There aim was not to prove one main theorem, but rather develop a
technique. The jury enjoyed marking our solutions.
There was no rigid schedule. The competition was to be taken lightly.
Other participants often invited me for a game of cards, or chess, or a simple
discussion. Having fun was just a part of research.
It was a fun week, what can I say?
