Workshop at the INT Fall-07 Program
New Approaches in Nuclear Many-Body Theory

October 15 - 19, 2007

Notice to all participants: The workshop is constructed so as to have only three 50 to 60 minute talks per day or two long talks and two short talks per day with much time for discussion. A speaker with 90 minutes is supposed to talk for 50 to 60 minutes and leave the remaining time for questions and discussion. If groups of participants want to organize their own discussion groups outside of the lectures and/or special seminars, please contact the organizers about making arrangements (e.g., space) for such events.
