A highlight of the ALCPG07 Meeting promises to be a Dueling
Pianos session scheduled for the evening of 23 October.
Not necessarily a musical event, although rumour has it that a physicist may
play a tune or two, the session will be a town hall meeting with a twist. This
session is designed to stimulate discussions on the hot topics surrounding the
ILC. As in a 'dueling pianos' performance, where a score can be played in a
major key or a minor key, in a jazz rhythm or with a swing beat, this session
is intended to be an exposition of different opinions on some critical issues
currently surrounding the ILC with an intended ensuing dialogue.
Workshop attendees are encouraged to
submit questions ahead of time.
Each question will get forwarded to two attendees, who will be asked to prepare
brief responses. Just like dueling pianos - sometimes the answers will
produce harmony, while other discussions may highlight competing forces.
