The workshop will extend from Monday AM through a full day Wednesday. It is planned to have three 50 min invited presentations each morning. Each will be designed to define a classical/quantum DFT interface problem, for detailed discussion among participants in the afternoon. The afternoon sessions will be broken up among the participants for detailed discussions of specific opportunities. Two or three separate rooms would be desirable for this purpose. During the last hour of the afternoon all participants will convene for reports from each subgroup.
An informal reception for arriving participants is planned for Sunday. An appropriate room for registration, wine and cheese is requested.
A workshop formal dinner is planned for Monday night. This would be reserved at a nearby restaurant. Tuesday and Wednesday evenings are left free for informal dinner arrangements.
A poster session is planned for one hour late Tuesday afternoon. Guidance will be offered for subject matter relevant to the workshop.
