Applications for fellowships should be submitted before Oct. 14, 2007. Please arrange for one letter of recommendation to be emailed before Oct. 14, 2007 to vienna.theor-physik@univie.ac.at . You will be notified by end of October.

We invite applications for talks from researchers working in areas related to the focus of the seminar. Junior participants, including advanced graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and junior faculty, will be given priority. Applications should be submitted before Oct. 14, 2007.
