First Announcement of the TROPICSAFE meeting

The half-annual meeting of the TROPICSAFE project meeting will be held on September 20 – 21, 2018, at the City hotel in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The meeting will be a great opportunity to discuss our project progress and to make plans for the upcoming year, but it will also provide the perfect opportunities for forming new friendships and enjoying good company.

As we still need to meet first in Santiago de Chile in spring, this first announcement is just a date notification that you will not forget to put the meeting on your busy calendar for 2018. However, on behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, I already now cordially invite you to the capital of Slovenia. Besides its five thousand-year-long history, Forbes Magazine ranked Ljubljana the fifth most idyllic city in Europe (2009), according to a survey conducted by Reader’s Digest, it is the most honest city in the world (2008), and a Mercer survey showed it is the safest city in SE Europe (2008, 2011). And last but not least, Ljubljana was the Green capital of Europe in 2016.

Best wishes and see you all in Ljubljana next fall.

Marina Dermastia, the president of the Local Organizing Committee
