Abstract

The origins and development of the QSCP meetings are recalled: from a congress organized in Paris in 1986 to honour Prof. Raymond Daudel, through Franco-Bulgarian cooperation between various teams then European contracts, in the frame of COST projects, involving a network of French, Spanish, British, Italian, Swedish, and Bulgarian scientists, till the holding of the first QSCP workshop near Pisa in 1996 to honour Prof. Stefan Christov. After that there was a meeting every year, always with proceedings published. This historical overview will be presented as an illustrated journey in picturesque cities of Western and Eastern Europe, North Africa, and North America, sprinkled with historical or philosophical anecdotes and insights.
