There will be 5 lecture mini-series, given by our main speakers. Each mini-lecture series will consist of four one hour lectures. In addition, there will be several outreach lectures in which potential applications are emphasized. The first workshop lecture will begin on Sunday at 9:30, and the final workshop lecture will end on Thursday evening.
Program and Schedule is available here.
