General info
DRWA08 aims to provide a meeting point and a forum for researchers in approximation theory and its applications, with the formula of open tutorials + invited working groups. The site, which has several rooms with white-board and PC projector and a computing laboratory with 27 PCs connected to the web, can host up to 4-5 working groups. There will be at disposal also a common room for scientific discussions among the participants to the tutorials who are not in a specific working group (see also the previous edition DRWA07). Please contact soon the organizers if you wish to arrange a working group.

Tutorial (open participation)
Timetable: September 8-9-10-11
