Program of the AIDA 2003 Workshop at CERN

The major themes of the workshop are feedback from users, functionality enhancements and interoperability issues. All sessions at the workshop will typically contain presentations and allow quite some time for discussions around the topics indicated.

Depending on the number of user contributions, some developer sessions may be merged.
