Subject: Springer Webinar Series/Optimal Transport, ONLINE, Jun 2022

Springer is glad to announce a new series of free webinars and
interviews handled by the UNITEXT Board members, who will rotate in
order to interview top experts in their field.

The starting point will be the topic faced in a textbook, and the
discussion will then expand and cover more general topics related to
the research and the personal history of the guest speaker. This
approach will benefit book series readers and invited participants,
who might use this environment as an opportunity to ask questions or
make suggestions in a direct exchange with speakers. Conversely,
viewers might appreciate having the published contents at hand to
delve deeper into the topics discussed.

In the first session, going live on June 9, Alfio Quarteroni will
interview Luigi Ambrosio. The speakers will dive into the subject of
Optimal Transport, and will discuss the most challenging open problems
and the future developments in the field.
