Note:  During the school we will incentive a close and informal contact between the students and the teachers. Furthermore, the students will be stimulated to talk about their current research activities and future interests. We feel that this is an important point, since young scientists should be involved in the building up of a strong community.

POSTER PRIZE: "Pedro Pascual Prize 2008" - In the last days of the school the students are welcome to present a poster of their research activity. We will select the bests posters for a prize (450 Euro for the first prize and 200 Euro for the second) and the right to present an oral contribution in the workshop.
