December 2007 ---, Pavia

We will have small working groups of researchers visiting the QUIT Group at Pavia. Each visitor/working group will stay for a period of time varying from a few days to two weeks, with a few exceptional longer visits of a month. Few visitors will be also invited to teach two-week mini-courses on topics of the workshop.

From our grants funding maybe available to cover Hotel [no travel], some seminar fees as a coverage to local expenses, or to pay short contracts (for our regulations and rules see also bureaucracy tips).

The workshop will be highly interdisciplinary, grouping physicists, mathematicians, computer-scientists, statisticians, and philosophers, also with the objective of developing a common language and bridging cultural gaps between the different disciplines.

A starting list of visitors with visiting dates is available in the following, it will be regularly updated, and will work as a condensation point for the groups of visitors. Visiting of young scientists will be encouraged. Also, external proposals to join existing groups or to start new groups will be considered, depending on availability of funds and local logistics.
