The workshop takes place at Schloss Ringberg, which is a beautiful and historic castle on the lake Tegernsee, an hour from Munich Airport. Schloss Ringberg is a small conference center that belongs to the Max Planck Society and is, not only a beautiful and unusual building with an interesting history, but an ideal location for a discussion meeting.  The workshop will be limited to about 45 participants to encourage interaction and discussion, and will be highly interdisciplinary.
