General Information

The Workshop will take place at the Hotel Cenobio dei Dogi, located in the small town of Camogli, near Genova . It will start in the morning of September 23 (Monday) and end at 1 p.m. on September 27 (Friday).

Participation is by invitation only. Anybody willing to participate should contact any member of the Local Organizing Committe (LOC) or of the International Advisory Committee.

We plan on having about 40-50 participants, and the participants will be given the opportunity to present their recent results in plenary sessions.

There will be no parallel sessions and no proceedings. Ample time will be set aside for discussions.

This is the seventh workshop in a series; the previous workshops took place in Abilene (TX, U.S.A., 2004), Zagreb (Croatia, 2005), Tuzla (Bosnia and Herzegovina, 2006), Helsinki (Finland, 2007), Trento (Italy, 2009) and Washington DC (USA, 2011).
