IR Retreat 2011 (Dec 11-14) - Preliminary Program

The basic idea is to use this get together for focussing on/discussing possible future projects and science.
Speakers should make their presentations as short as possible - the goal of the presentations is to stimulate discussion
The presentations should not be regular talks - they should bring up points to start discussion
