Presidential Conference

This week we participated in the Israeli President's annual conference. This is a the place where important people from Israel and abroad come to talk about the future of the country, the region, and the world.

The Hebrew University was a co-sponsor of the event, and had its own space to presents research highlight. The target audience was not scientifically minded, so the message was to be kept at high level. Each participating lab had a small space where a large poster was presented on a table. We had TV monitors showing a movie about our lab.

Assaf and Avital participated as guides, and got to see the important people and even to talk with few. We did manage to get to hear some of the sessions, although I suspect the main action at these events in beyond the scenes.
