Dear Rakesh,

no, they were not invited.

This is an ISMT conference. We have two kinds of format:

- the usual one; only the 8 participants to the ISMT, half day for each paper.

- an enlarged one like this, where we have more participants, like here. 14.

We still want to have a lot of discussion in the 
second format, so I choose to have no more than 2 
each half day.

Those who are invited depends on the place and the theme.

The place is Italy, and I wanted to invite some 
Italian scholars, philosophers, e.g. Finelli, 
Fineschi, Tomba etc.

The topic of the conference is linked to the MEGA 
2 and the German debates, so I wanted Germans 
like Heinrich, Roth, Hecker, etc.

Also because I wanted that these people and 
topics have more space in publications in 
English, most of them are not yet regular 
participants in the debate.

The people you quote are excellent and I have the highest esteem for them.
