The meeting was held during 21-23 January 2009 at Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy. The Laboratory is the largest underground laboratory in the world for experiments in particle physics, etc. and used as a world wide facility by many scientists. Novel Laureate Dr. Carlo Rubbia happened to visit the Laboratory and was attending another meeting.
