22 - 27 August 2010, Dwingeloo (NL)
For each talk, a **total** duration is indicated. So, 20 min actually
means 15+5, leaving a little room for questions. Every speaker should
checks his/her connection to the beamer beforehand, so that we can
change over rapidly.
The space in the meeting room is not large enough to allow for tables, like we had in Socorro. Therefore, people will either have to suffer their laptops on their laps (we have wifi for all), or they can keep them under their chairs and perhaps pay attention to the talks.
During the conference, all talks will be open to the world by means of our EVO internet conferencing system. Some people will even give presentations remotely. Instructions for connecting to EVO/CALIM will be distributed.
At the end of each day, everyone is supposed to leave the ASTRON building before, say, 18:30. The hotel has a nice area with a bar (and wifi), where we can continue to enjoy each other until late in the night. There will be no other guests to distract us.
The hotel will serve a buffet breakfast from 07:30. Coffee, lunch and tea will be served at ASTRON. For dinner, it offers two restaurants. In addition, nearby Dwingeloo is a tourist village with a variety of restaurants.
Keep an eye on the football match on monday.
18:00 Welcome reception at the Hotel de Borken, Lhee. This includes soup and rolls.
NB: Initially, drinks will be on ASTRON, but at some point people will have to start paying for themselves. Understandably, the precise moment will not be announced beforehand.
NB: The poster boards will be at the back of the meeting room, separating it from the ASTRON canteen. They will be be filled with the programmed poster contributions (see above), and with any additional posters that people care to bring. Any remaining empty space will be filled by ASTRON/JIVE.
15:30 End of the official CALIM program.
15:30 ASTRON colloquium (CALIM-related): "Mob Calibration" by Smirnov, Heywood and Schwardt (with audience participation).
16:30 Followed by drinkies.
The traditional unofficial program, i.e. outside the resposibility of
the CALIM SOC. It consists of in-depth discussions, demonstrations
and exercises, for the die-hards. People are encouraged to bring
(well-formulated) problems that we might contemplate together (NB: Tim
did this for the Cape Town discussion, and that worked very well).
A very effective way of describing a problem, and thus to get the most useful response from others, is by means of a PURR log. Especially if they are submitted beforehand (e.g. via a wiki, PURR logs are HTML).
We will structure the friday program during the workshop. Here are the items that are known when this program was drawn up:
