Frauenchiemsee IR 05 (Dec 05-07) - Preliminary Program

The basic idea is to use this get together for focussing on/discussing possible future projects and science.
The sessions contain a few overviews, some shorter presentations, and extended periods for discussion/brainstorming.
Speakers should make their presentations as short as possible - the goal of the presentations is to stimulate discussion rather than be a "normal" conference type presentation.
Not everyone is giving a presentation, but everyone should come prepared for discussion in at least 1 of the topics.
