URSSI First Workshop Agenda

On Tuesday and Wednesday the workshop will be held at the Chevron room, and Thursday will be in the Sproul and Golub (Home) rooms, both located in the Berkeley International house. Address is 2299 Piedmont Ave Berkeley, CA 94720. The entrance to the workshop is just on the left side of the main I house entrance and there will be signs directing you to the room.

Meals are all "on your own". We hope people will self-assemble into small groups for lunches and dinners, and continue discussions over meals.
