The possibility to hold the workshop at the Gump Station of UC Berkeley has been confirmed.

Rationale for the ocation

Next year we will gave ALPS participants in

  • Europe
  • China
  • japan
  • Australia
  • USA (California and new York)

We thus want to have workshops not only in Europe but also sometimes in locations more convenient for for the Pacific rim participants. Moorea is a convenient location with convenient flights to the nearby Papeete airport:

  • nonstop from
    • Auckland
 * Hawaii
 * Los Angeles
 * New York
 * Sydney
 * Tokyo
  • direct connections with a refulelling stop from
 * Paris
 * Frankfurt


Early June 2008 seems best because

  • it is in the dry season which runs from April to November
  • it is not in the high toursist season which starts end of June
  • it is after classes which end at ETH in late May


Please add other potentially interested people both from ALPS and outside. We will define the program once we have a nice participant list of about 15 people.

In order to stay below the limit of 20 participants we will not yet announce it on the ALPS mailing list but will instead discuss the plans with the active participants of the June 2007 workshop. Participating in June 2007 guarantees a space in June 2008!
