    Nucleosynthesis in Binary Stars
    from 4 Apr 2005 through 15 Apr 2005





The first day of the workshop will be devoted to a general round of introductions, followed by three 45-min talks giving a general overview of the topics we would like to bring together in the workshop. In the afternoon, after a general discussion, the participants will organize themselves into smaller groups of people interested in working on specific problems during the workshop.

The format of the following days is to typically have two talks in the morning, of 30-45 min duration, followed by coffee and a brief general discussion. For the rest of the day the participants work and/or discuss in smaller groups. We reconvene each day at 16:00h for another two talks during the first week, while also each group can report on progress made during the day. There will be room for additional short oral contributions from the participants, focusing on problems in the field, also during the second week. The presentations can be of an impromtu nature as the workshop progresses.

Saturday 09 April 2005

13:00 Lunch at a pancake restaurant, followed by a boat tour through the canals

of Leiden.

Sunday 10 April 2005

Excursion to the Keukenhof: the famous landscaped garden with tulip and other bulb flower displays (they're in season).

Other suggestions for weekend activities:

Cycling trips in the surroundings of Leiden: dunes, beaches, and tulip fields. Leiden has many excellent musea that are well worth visiting; or visit Amsterdam, the lively capital of the Netherlands.



The workshop continues with more emphasis on informal discussions and small working groups, but (impromptu) presentations are also possible. The program will be adapted as the workshop progresses.
