The meeting starts officially on Monday afternoon at 14.30 with the R3B Collaboration meeting preceded by the onsite registration. Parallel meetings of the project collaborations and the working groups will take place from Monday to Wednesday. In case you have not done already, please tell us your plans for such meetings. There are still a few time slots and rooms available for your most welcome get-togethers. The plenary sessions of general relevance are reserved for the last two days of the workshop. This year's special topic on Friday will be the ELI project and its synergies with NUSTAR.
