Scenes from the banquet
One of the invited speaker, Zvi Galil, thanked all of us foreigners for our courage in coming to a city that is too often on the evening news. Two of us especially earned their laurels.

Gonzalo Navarro brought along his wife, Betina, and little Martina (6 months old).

Leszek Gasieniec, sitting next to Laxmi Parida, came to Jerusalem to give a talk for some friends of his. This is true heroism, given that his name does not appear as an author in the proceedings.
