Friday 19th September 2008
Centre for Scientific Computing, University of Warwick
Organiser: R.A. Römer (Warwick)
Conference email: avh08 @ warwick.ac.uk
The meeting has been cancelled on Sep 17th, 2008 due to a low turnout of participants! Registered attendees should have received or will receive soon a cancellation email. We will endeavour to return the registration fees (minus handling fees) in the coming weeks. Please be patient, we never did this before! Any questions, pls use the conference email address.
This is the annual meeting of the UK Alexander von Humboldt Association. The theme this year will be "Energy", which we hope is interesting to a large number of participants, as it is both timely and topical. Two eminent speakers on the subject will give us the answers to several pressing questions and, perhaps, let us find many new questions on energy and its uses during the day.
This programme may still subject to some changes.
