Current revision

Preliminary Programme

As in 2007, this year we have avoided plenary talks (usually invited talks to start the meeting). Apart from the first and last day of each session where status reports of the WGs will be presented, the sessions will consist of working groups sessions which will be devoted to discussions and informal talks. There should be plenty of time, for each participant or for small groups, to work on the topics set out by the WG.
