Upcoming event: Molpark meeting in the Amalfi coast

A few of us are heading this weekend to the Amalfi coast for the second meeting of the Molpark network. If the Molpark kick-off meeting of last year in Izmir, Turkey may serve as an indication, this promises to be a memorable event. We are crossing our fingers hoping that the volcano in Island will not ruin our plans. Watch this space!
