The Workshop is dedicated to advances in mathematical theory with an accent on beauty and clarity, rather than technicality. Good explanations of heuristics are very welcome, as well as interesting applications, even if not fully developed mathematically. A large part of all talks should be accessible to good postgraduate students.
This year the Program Committee was extended to stress the national character of the workshop. The full committee is listed below.
