A workshop involves a session coordinator, and possibly co-organisers. The duration of the workshop will be 90 minutes, where at least half of the session should be dedicated to interaction with the participants. The session coordinator must submit an outline of the entire workshop, stating:
  1. Contact details including name, affiliation and e-mail of session coordinator in bold, followed by affiliations for co-organisers. The session coordinator together with co-organisers should write a short statement about their expertise within the field.
  2. Title and objectives of the workshop, learning goals and type of activities (e.g. presentations with audience interaction, round table with panel discussants, pro/con session).

Before submitting an abstract, authors must create a conference profile. Abstracts should be submitted as PDF file to the Abstract portal. When submitting the abstract you need to select which of the four main areas the abstract is covering. Note that a PDF copy of your abstract will be made available on the conference website.
