Workshop Program

The BcN 2010 Workshop took place on April 19, 2010. We had 32 registered attendees and despite traveling was made impossible for people from Europe due to the volcano in Iceland, all talks could be given as scheduled (one was given via Skype). We would like to thank again all presenters and attendees for contributing to a successful workshop and are looking forward to meeting you at the next BcN.
