Workshop 2-3 February 2015 : Barcelona, Spain

The objective of the workshop is to interact around our ongoing studies, work together on specific issues and analyses, and discuss new prospectives.

Monday 2 February morning: Presentation of the ongoing works
Tuesday 3 : Continuation of presentations and discussions
Tuesday afternoon : Working groups / discussions on collective planned works, and on BLLAST prospectives

A more detailed programm will be given prior to the meeting
