I have been invited as a keynote speaker to a conference in India. It will be held in Patna, in the state of Bihar. Bihar is one of the poorest states in India with a large activity around the building of a new university. A society of researchers from around India as well as around the world has been created that calls itself, Bihar Brains. The reason is to bring together researchers and it is Bihar Brains that arranges the conference. In the same week as the conference I have been invited to Banaras Hindu University to give a talk about my research as well as opening up for possible future collaborations.
