The colloquium is organized in honour of Ugo Montanari, on the occasion of his 65th birthday.

Five eminent scientists, whose friendships with Ugo dates back many years, have accepted to give invited talks on research topics that cover some of the various fields spanned by Ugo's research activity, past and present.

As a "satellite event" of the Colloquium, a dinner will take place on Wednesday, June 11, in the area of the "Old Slaughterhouse" (i Vecchi Macelli), at walking distance from the center of the town (see the map ). In the little square at the end of Via Volturno, the entrance of the Vecchi Macelli is through a huge iron gate.

The dinner will take place in a hall near to the Museo degli Strumenti per il Calcolo. For this special occasion, the museum administration kindly offered to keep the museum open from 7 to 9 PM, and proposes a free guided tour (about 40 min.) starting at 7:30 PM. The dinner is scheduled around 8:15 PM beginning with some starters.
