RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS AND ABSTRACTS
If you are willing to give a talk during the Workshop please suggest
a title and abstract. Note that although not all participants will
be able to speak, all submitted abstracts will be compiled and distributed,
to facilitate the exchange of ideas. Time will also be allocated
to short communications and to poster presentations.
Submission link is now closed.
