Cosmic Clues from the Near Field Universe

5-9, June 2016

a research workshop of the Israel Science Foundation



The basic structure of the meeting is to have 4-5 talks in the morning sessions (09:00 – 13:00) and to keep the afternoons for discussions and collaborative work. Speakers will have 30’ for their talks, including discussions. We have ample time for discussions and more talks if the need will arise.
This is a true workshop and the aim of the talks is to update us all on new works, advances and ideas. Also, we have quite a few first time participants in our CLUES group meetings and we are
very happy to have you. Please aim your talks at introducing your work to us and we hope that this will lead to new joint projects.
