RSAI Newsletter (May 2021)

Dear RSAI members,

I hope this email finds you well.

I am writing you as the 13th World Congress just opened (yesterday) with an intense first day, packed with two excellent keynote lectures and 35 sessions, including both regular, national, and special ones. To this starter we are adding today a first dish with 40 more sessions, another much expected Keynote Speech, by Prof. Siqi Zheng (MIT), and a full day of Regional Science Avademy activities. I hope those of you who decided to join the congress will have as much interest in these events as I personally had throughout yesterday.

I am also happy to take the chance to send you the May 2021 issue of the RSAI newsletter (download), as usual skillfully edited by Prof. Martijn Smit (University of Utrecht). Martijn is seeking a second pair of eyes to help with both the gathering of contributions, and the proofreading of the final product. Applications from the global South or from those with a good range of contacts there would be particularly welcome, as would being a native speaker of English. Please contact Martijn at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. within Friday 23 July 2021 if you’re interested, enclosing a CV and a half-page statement of purpose, indicating why you feel you’re a good fit for editing the newsletter and how involved you have been and plan to be in RSAI and its activities.

To all members, a very fine day; and to the World Congress participants, best wishes of an interesting day, with lots of learning and interactions.

Kind regards,

Andrea Caragliu
