Aula Maria Curie, Palazzo d'Ancona, Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa, October 18-20 2011

Workshop Rationale:

For the first time the yearly DAVID meeting will be held in Pisa, where the Center for Computational Chemistry and Cosmology (a.k.a. 4C or "foresee") was recently inaugurated. The workshop will last 3 days, from the afternoon of October 18th until the 20th at 17:30, although we will have the traditional cocktail opening the games on the 17th in the evening.

Please notice that in the evening of Tuesday 18th there will be a concert offered by SNS to all the participants.

Rooms in the Puteano guesthouse in Piazza dei Cavalieri are booked for the participants from the night of 17th until the morning of the 21st. The social dinner will be held at restaurant "La Clessidra" on wednesday 19th at 8:00pm.
