The 10th edition of the Summer School on “Methods and Models of Kinetic Theory” M&MKT2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19 emergency.
All the speakers scheduled in M&MKT2020 already confirmed their presence to the next edition of the Summer School, which has been rescheduled in June 2022, with the usual format, at least we hope so.
In the last months we convinced ourselves to organize a sort of special edition, as a “winter prelude” to the next edition of the School, in which the talks will be mainly given by speakers of M&MKT2022; this wants to be an occasion to gather the scientific community grown around Porto Ercole School, ensuring the continuity of this fruitful meeting.
The winter prelude” will take place on-linefrom 8 to 10 February 2021, from 4 pm to 6 pm (CET), with two talks per day.
The on-line event will be hosted and technically organized by Collegio Carlo Alberto – Torino; the program is here below. 
Registration is free but mandatory; for further information please visit the website
