Now that spriong is coming to

a close, it is the beginning of sum- mer in Europe. One of the bigger dif- ference between Europe and the rest of the world regarding working and summer holidays is that Europe really slows down.
In Scandinavia we start
our vacation period aſt er midsummer. Most of the Scandinavians have 4 - 5 weeks of holiday. From mid-July the Germans and mid Europe start their vacation time. And in August all of the Mediterranean has their holiday.
T is means that from midsum-
mer to the end of August it is very diffi cult to have connections and ac- tivities in Europe. People from the U.S. and other regions many times are surprised when no one seems to work in Europe from June through August. I have no solution really for this. It is just the way of the culture
here and it will take time to change this. But times goes fast. Soon it will be the
annual IFDAT conference in San Diego. I hope you have scheduled it. T e pro- gram is really interesting as well as the venue, Hyatt Mission Bay, is spectacular. T e preliminary plan for IF- DAT 2016 is to have it in Nor- way in the beginning of September.
I can’t wait Sincerely, to see you all in the fall, have a great summer season!
