Planned Workshop Program

The workshop will be organized in a highly interactive way, in line with the preceding editions. During the morning session, we plan short talks that will serve as teasers for the following discussions. After lunch, we plan breakout discussion sessions on targeted topics. The concrete topics for discussion will be identified based on the input from the presentations in the morning session and suggestions of the reviewers. To guarantee maximum involvement of attendees, we will limit breakout session groups to 6 persons maximum. Groups will be requested to prepare a few slides with the main findings of the discussion for plenary presentation and discussion. The plan is to let working groups continue their work in the form of preparing book chapters after the workshop. In addition, a joint roadmap paper is planned that will be coordinated by the workshop organizers and co-authored by all interested workshop attendees.

Here is the concrete plan for the workshop:
