The tentative program is shown below. Any updates will be published on this page. Check it periodically!

The workshop will feature invited talks and poster presentations of accepted paper contributions.

  • Invited talks: throughout the day, invited speakers will share their latest findings in 25-minute talks with 5-minute Q&A sessions.
  • Poster presentations for accepted papers: selected paper contributions will be invited for poster presentations at the workshop.
