    Since the overall number of participants is strictly limited we may have to make a selection. We plan to include the final list of participants on the conference website no later than the 22nd of December. The website is located at http://crunch.ikp.physik.tu-darmstadt.de/qghxm.

    Everyone registered will receive a note-of-reception e-mail within one week after receiving the registration e-mail, and a final confirmation until the 22nd December indicating whether s/he had to be queued, and whether an oral presentation is possible.

    We are looking forward to a productive workshop!
