sSPT (small SPT) 2023
Otranto (Apulia, Italy)

4-10 June 2023

The sSPT2023 workshop will take place at Hotel degli Haethey in Otranto (near Lecce, Apulia, Southern Italy)
on 4-10 June 2023.

Due to the present circumstances, the workshop will be of smaller size than previous SPT conferences; we expect about 50 participants, also to cope with COVID regulations in case of a pandemic recrudescence. All participants, in particular those traveling long distance, should be meant "to be confirmed" until near the conference date.

The meeting will be structured so to leave ample time for informal interactions among participants

The actual meeting will take place from the morning of monday 5 June to the late afternoon (and dinner) of friday 9 June; thus sunday 4/6 and saturday 10/6 are, respectively, arrival and departure days. We expect participants, and in particular speakers, to be in Otranto for the whole workshop period.
