Dear Colleagues,
Our Conference was really global: about 145 participants from 43 countries (25 countries if the affiliations rather than nationalities are considered) of all Continents.
Thank you very much to the chairs of the sessions, the keynote speakers, the referees of the student competition and to all of you for your support and excellent contributions. It was really a pleasure to host you in our Department at the University of Perugia.
Looking forward to seeing all of you in Buenos Aires for IEIC7.

Kind regards,
Eric Conti and all IEIC6 organizers
