Sunday June 29

A full day of Working Group activity. John Impagliazzo went on the organized tour to Toldeo and another group member missed it but didn't come to work.

Lunch was once again at the Residencia. The opening reception was in the hall. After the reception, I went to a dinner hosted for the keynote speakers in the Madrid Soccer Stadium. We were in an air conditioned venue with big screen TV and a view of the field. We watched the soccer match for the Europe Cup between Germany and Spain. We had of tapas followed by filet mignon. The keynotes were Wendy Hall and her husband Peter, Phil Long from MIT and Roger Boyle (who was one of those pickpocketed on the metro coming in frmo the airport.
