Director's Letter
Dear colleagues, students, and friends of CMES, 

As we are about to start the spring semester 2022, I would like to take the opportunity to send my New Year's greetings and wish everyone a healthy, peaceful, and happier year. Once again, we will have to work a bit harder and be more creative to maintain our sense of community given the ongoing, and currently rather acute, challenges linked to Covid.
