June 29 - July 6, 2008, Baja, Hungary



Everyone is welcome to give a lecture. If you intend to do so, please inform us about the title of your talk, how long time you need (e.g. 20, 45, 60, 90, or 2x90 minutes), whether you need overhead (for transparencies) or computer projector. Furthermore, we kindly ask you to submit the abstract of your talk at your earliest convenience. In case of late correspondence, however regretfully, we can not take the responsibility for the possible skipping of the talk from the program and/or book of abstracts.


We have placed a tentative, very preliminary program on the web-site. The organizers assume no responsibility for skipping, changes, extensions, as well as for the explicit and implicit content of the abstracts or lectures whatsoever. Nevertheless, should you note any erroneous or unwanted detail, or have any wishes concerning the program, then please inform us about in order to keep the program as up-to-date and correct as possible.


From Budapest, the recommended train to Baja departs from Kőbánya-Kispest Railway Station at 16:56 on June 29, see here. To take the train we can meet and assist you, in case you give us details of your arrival to Budapest. This direct (no transfer) train arrives at Baja (its terminal station) at 20:52.
