Pearl Court. Toronto is one of the few places where you can have dim sum while it’s snowing outside, observed EKI. Family lunch before an upcoming birthday where adult children don’t care so much about the celebration anymore. Relaxed conversation about life. (Gerrard Street East, Toronto) 20150208

2006/11/19 Crete 2003 – Toronto 2006

A connection started in Crete 2003 continues in Toronto today.
One activity that has become regular for me is the annual meeting of the ISSS. Not only do I reconnect with many old colleagues from the systems community, but since the conference moves every year, I get to meet new people.

At the ISSS meeting in Crete in 2003, Apostolos was one the authors in sessions I ran. He was then a student in Greece, and we had some conversations on career direction. We’ve kept in touch over e-mail over the years. He went on to study in the International Master’s Program in Bioinformatics at Chalmers University of Technology in Goteborg, Sweden. This led to an opportunity to visit here at the University of Toronto, in the Department of Medical Genetics and Microbiology. Apostolos lives on our side of town, so for Sunday brunch, we decided he would meet the whole family for dim sum.
