Event description

Matthew Hennessy

Matthew Hennessy will turn 65 on Wednesday, 15 October 2014. This small, informal two-day workshop will celebrate this event by gathering some of Matthew's former students and collaborators at IMT Institute for Advanced Studies Lucca in the beautiful city of Lucca.

We are compiling a list of Matthew Hennessy's academic descendants. Please let us know if we are missing anyone.


There will be a small number of invited talks and plenty of opportunities for informal interaction, both scientific and social. The programme (last updated on Wednesday, 15 October 2014) is here.

The social dinner for the workshop will be held at the restaurant Port Ellen Clan, Via del Fosso 120, Lucca. The restaurant is very close to IMT Lucca, where the workshop is held. [Map.]
