Call for workshops
On the 27th and 28th June pre-conference workshops and tutorials will be organized.
All workshops and tutorials will be open to all conference participants at
no additional cost.
Workshops with participatory aspects will be preferred over straight lectures.
The tutorials and workshops should be led by recognised experts in the material
to be taught.
Each workshop or tutorial may be proposed for a single 90-minute session.
A typical conference participant may register for up to four 90-minute workshops
or tutorials during the workshop day. A half-hour coffee break will occur
in the middle of the morning and in the middle of the afternoon with a lunch
break at mid-day. Some workshops may be invited to be offered twice during
the day to avoid conflicts with other popular concurrent workshops. Instructors
Facilities for Workshops
All workshop rooms will be arranged in classroom style and have tables for
