The purpose of these tables is to maintain a schedule of scientific talks and discussions relevant to your program.


Before you depart, PLEASE fill out an activity report and report your publications to KITP. The KITP needs feedback from the community: this not only serves help to improve and develop our services; it also provides an evaluation tool that is crucial to our continued funding.

It is also very important to acknowledge KITP for papers to which your visit contributed, and where feasible list KITP as an institutional affiliation. All KITP activities are supported by NSF PHY11-25915.
