Press Release: The 30th AMEM and Its Associated Meetings

For the last three days, or even from Saturday, I was very busy on many preparation and arrangement of the 30th AMEM. Before, I was thinking to make some articles and share it here (or even in as I promised to them), but in fact, I can’t finish any article until now. One is because I have no free time (less sleep) and two is because so many things are not clear up yet, so that I can’t share it then.

But, at least, to merit my promise before, I would like to share the article on the Press Release:
