A Note About Workshop Format
The idea of this workshop is to generate as much spontaneous discussion as possible. With that end in view, we're asking everyone to condense their material into a 5-7 minute presentation. This is very short, we know, so our advice is to go for the sharp angle, the big picture, or the potential further research questions attendant upon your current research. Please try to read all the discussion papers at least for your session in advance. We're hoping this is the best way to make use of the diverse expertise available.
