Dates: 27. Feb. - 01. Mar. 2017
Location: University of Heidelberg, Mathematikon, Seminarraum A
Further Information: We will start in the morning at 10 am. There is no fixed schedule, because its better to have some flexibility. The talks should take at most 1:15 h to have enough time to discuss about the topics afterwards. We will have 10-15 min breaks between the talks. On the first two days we will have 3 talks and 4 talks on the third day. The speakers should prepare a handout.
