Program Summary


The program will consist of two sessions of 3 talks each by invited speakers. Each talk will be 20 minutes. To encourage interaction between speakers and attendees, we allocate 10 minutes of questions after each 20 minute talk, and there is a half hour coffee break between sessions.
