November 23, 2015

ICTP-SAIFR, São Paulo, Brazil

Auditorium of IFT-UNESP


The goal of this meeting is to get together everybody that has been working in the field of DM at some point – or is simply interested in the field now – and lives somewhere in the vicinities of the state of São Paulo. By getting to know each other and our own active research fields, we aim at developing new projects within Brazil and South-America, first steps to build a DM community in the area.
