In the period of 18-22 October 1996 I was invited to attend the
Conference "Galois Theory of Local and Global Fields" organized by
the Euler International Mathematical Institute at Sankt Petersburg.
I would like to express the organizers once again my gratitude for making
possible my participation there. The conference-talks were of a good level.
Each guest had in the building of the Institute at his disposal a room for
doing his work during the five days of the conference. I really appreciate that.
On the other hand, the internet connection did not always work, but this is not
so a big problem. The library of the Institute seemed to me not to be very "complete". Perhaps one could do much more in this direction. It would also be fine
if the guests could get in the Institute at each time they want.
I was much impressed of the russian hospitality, of the ballet evening in
the Marinskii-Theatre, of the concert that I heard in the Philarmony, of
Ermitage, and of the other cultural attractions that Sankt Petersburg,
this magnificent city, offers. I shall always return there with pleasure.
