Linear schedule

We will preserve the workshop spirit, that means, a linear schedule with no parallel sessions and ample time for discussion after each presentation as well as between sessions.

Linear schedule

Oral and poster presentations

Applicants to the workshop will be selected to give either oral or poster presentations, with the latter being given significant weight to the program including short oral poster “flash sessions”.

  • Invited talks: 30 mins (including discussions)
  • Contributed talks: 25 mins (including discussion)

Bringing together experts and newcomers

It is intended to bring together experts and newcomers in the field, to learn from one another, and to foster collaborations.
