As I explained in my last post, the “official” birth of the SC17 conference was on November 17, 2016, 8:25. However, only a day later, I am “really officially” in charge of the SC conference, when in a little behind-the-scences ceremony, the Key of the SC Conference was passed on form the past chair (John West, SC16) to me.

The Key of the SC Conference. Pure gold, I guess 😉 Attached to the keys are little charms with the names of all SC General chairs. My first task will be to add another charm with my name. — Picture by Bernd Mohr
