Revision as of 13:41, 1 June 2010

Workshop's agenda

This agenda is still in its draft form and it still might change. Please contact us if you have any comments.

The workshop will be structured around invited science presentations and contribution talks, concluding with a discussion periods. We anticipate stimulating significant discussion and tackling the goals of the workshop.

It is very likely we will record all presentations in order to make them available through this website. Please contact us if you strongly object to being recorded! We might also be able to stream the talks live. Details soon.
