In order to have a workshop format with ample time for discussions, all talks will be invited, but suggestions for speakers are welcome. It is neither necessary nor desirable that all participants give a formal talk. All participants can submit a poster and every presenter of a poster will have an opportunity to give a 5 minute presentation to let people know who they are and what they are working on. These will take place early in the workshop before the reception or breaks. A few poster submissions may be selected, at the option of the organizers for 20 minute talks on recent developments.Monday July 6
