VENUE OF THE MEETING: The workshop will take place at the BLTP JINR. The lunches are available in the canteen on site. Downtown cafes can be found on the website of the workshop. For more information (map of the town) see the web page of JINR http://jinr.ru or the Workshop web page http://theor.jinr.ru/~readings/2011/index.html.


BOARD and LODGING: The accommodation is arranged in the Hotel "Dubna", with the breakfast included.


LOCATION: Dubna, whose population is almost 70,000, is located on the banks of the Volga River, 120 km away from the north part of Moscow. No major highways go through Dubna, so it is nicely fitted into beautiful, quiet landscapes made up by the Volga river, the Moscow Reservoir on the Volga formed by a hydropower plant, the Moscow Volga shipping canal, the Dubna river (the Volga's tributary), a number of smaller rivers, and, of course, forests and fields. Appeasing natural landscapes are within an easy bicycle or skiing trip from any place in Dubna.  Dubna is close enough to Moscow for you to be able to leave Dubna early in the morning, spend a whole day in Moscow, and come back to Dubna in the late evening. There is a direct railway and bus communication between Dubna and Moscow. Dubna has no ecologically problematic industry. Rather it is a hi-tech city. Dubna is well-known internationally, first of all, because it is a home to one of the world's largest centers of fundamental science: the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research.


WORKSHOP PROCEEDINGS AND ABSTRACTS: The submitted abstracts will be available online at the Workshop website before the start of the workshop. They will be supplemented by the slides of talks and for those interested by the extended contributions. Poster presentations especially for young participants will also be considered.
