,,When there is need not only of smart intelligence and versatile spirit, but of determination and persistence and resistance, I say aloud to myself: You are from Abruzzo!''

Benedetto Croce (Italian Philosopher from Pescasseroli L'Aquila 1866-1952)

The Physics Department of the University of l'Aquila, in charge for the local organization of the FNMA09 Conference, proudly wishes to announce that the CONFERENCE WILL BE HELD despite the disastrous quake of April 6th 2009!!

The conference dates and deadlines will be maintained according to what was scheduled prior to the quake by the organizing committee. It has been necessary to move the conference Location slightly about 60 km away from L'Aquila to Sulmona. Sulmona is a delightful small art and historical town in the province of L'Aquila, hosting a Theater, an Auditorium, and several cultural Institutions. The surroundings of Sulmona are full of spots of breathtaking natural beauty. The conference will be held in the wonderful renaissance building of Palazzo dell'Annunziata which hosts the local Auditorium.

We hope that all of you who have expressed interest in participating in the conference in the last months will be still happy to join this event. The panel of the invited and keynote speakers is of world class quality and spans a broad range of leading edge research fields, in advanced materials, nanotechnology, and in general condensed matter physics. We really believe that everyone of you will deeply enjoy this event both for science and leisure.

Last but not least, your participation will be a tangible sign of solidarity with the Physics Department of the University of L'Aquila. The Faculty of Science in Coppito has solidly withstood the quake, but with inevitable damages to the internal walls. The reconstruction of the whole University will start right from the research labs of the Physics Department which is considered by the Rector himself to be of strategic importance for the whole University and not only for the Faculty of Science. The "self organized" response of the Department was the fastest possible, the teaching activity has been efficiently moved to the LNGS (National Laboratory of Gran Sasso) site. The research activity will likely restart at the end of the summer at the latest. The FNMA09 conference will be a first strong sign to the international scientific community that we are, even more than before, a really lively community of civilized scientists deeply involved in active creation of science.

So, please come to join FNMA09.... and bring your colleagues and families.

Conference Organizing Committee Chairman.
