Program: Papers & Presentations 26-Oct-2014

The arrangement for the workshop on Sunday 26-October-2014 is following:

First every participant gives a short (8 minutes) presentation of the thematic viewpoint that she/he would like to advance in the workshop. Every participant should prepare her/himself a short and focused introduction of an interesting topic to discuss. These presentations take place during the morning session.

After that, in the afternoon, the participants will form groups that have linkage between the viewpoints. During the afternoon the groups will discuss about the viewpoints and formulate a joint position/viewpoint/topic that would lead to research paper propositions to conferences or journals. The goal is that we should have a thematic session in a future conference or a special issue in some journal. During the group discussion suitable forums should also be discussed. After the discussions, at the end of the day, each group will present their ideas to other groups.

10:00 - 10:15 Welcoming words
