one month off


Hello everybody! August 2014 will be like a “work-holiday” month for me. I’m going to attend two conferences (BioRob 2014 and EMBC 2014), in order to present my research work (see my two more recent Publications). And I’ll take as well some days off, I mean, real holidays, with sun and everything. No permanent internet connection, so it’ll be difficult to update my blog. I’ll be back in September, so… enjoy your holidays you too and see you in a month 🙂
