Historical notes
• San Miniato Topical Seminars started in
1984, then in 2000 were moved to
Pontignano and in 2001 to Siena – there
are several series: detectors, physics
results and computing – IPRD13 is the
13th in a series & the 23rd overall
• The origin of kaos is in the title of a novel
by Luigi Pirandello, NP (born in Caos near
Girgenti), which later became a movie
(1984) directed by Fratelli Taviani, who
were born in San Miniato
