An informal workshop devoted to a relaxed and fruitful discussion, in an exceptional environment, of selected topics in the field of lattice theory. We plan to have invited lectures, short presentations and ample time for exchange of ideas.


- Finite Temperature and Density QCD
- Lattice Phenomenology
- Symmetries and Topology on the Lattice
- Quantum Gravity and Random Geometries

Our plan is to devote each day to a particular topic. We foresee three or four invited lectures each day, in the morning and in part of the afternoon, leaving the rest of the day for contributed presentations and discussion.
Benasque offers an agreeable atmosphere for participants to discuss and exchange ideas. Computing facilities will be available. No proceedings will be published. Early registration is strongly advised.
