Today I received the very good news that our proposal with Jean-Michel Marin to undertake “research in pair” in CIRM, Luminy, a fortnight next summer was accepted! This research centre in Mathematics is a southern and French version of the renowned German centre of Oberwolfach and, while I would have prefered the cool Black Forest to the burning rocks of the nearby calanques, I am very grateful for this support from the sponsors of the  CIRM centre. We aim at revising the book Bayesian Core towards a Use R! version during this fortnight (if the heat does not kill our legendary productivity!).  The CIRM centre is located in a nicely renovated bastide within a small park, and the famous climbing cliffs of the calanques are within walking distance. (I just need to find a climbing partner!) I have organised several meetings there along the years and the atmosphere there is always propitious for research. (There is also a well-provided library, if not comparable to Oberwolfach.)
