-- AndreaPallottini - 14 Sep 2014


Palazzo d'Ancona, Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa, October 13-15 2014


Workshop Rationale:

The yearly DAVID meeting will be held in Pisa at 4C (Center for Computational Chemistry and Cosmology) of SNS (Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa). The workshop will last 3 days, from the morning of Mon, Oct. 13rd to lunch of Wed, Oct 15th. We are glad to welcome new Davidians this year: Paolo Comaschi and Maria Orofino. As usual the meeting will be preceded by an opening cocktail (this year kindly offered by Simo) on the 12th in the evening, so the new DAVID members can introduce themselves and socialise with the veterans.

Talks will be 20 mins + 10 mins question time. The program will be dense, so please don't exceed the allocated time. Note that this year the chair persons will be mostly students.

Rooms in the Puteano guesthouse in Piazza dei Cavalieri are booked for the participants from the night of 12nd until the morning of the 15th.

A social dinner will be held on the 14th, at Osteria la Toscana.
