Etienne, Cedric, and some others are in a house rented all specially for the occasion. Several days of work and reflection, away from everything together. It does not happen so often, and their excitement is visible. Etienne, Cedric and the others are mathematicians, physicists, philosophers ... There is exuberant and taciturn, the prudent and optimistic, enthusiastic and reticent ... Everybody came to discuss about the man who was, at one time or another in their lives, an inspirer, an accomplice; Henri Poincare. Henri Poincare (1854 -1912) is probably one of the greatest scientists of all time and inspire scientists' research throughout the twentieth century until today.
