1. Workshop Proposals (Deadline: August 31, 2016)

Workshop organizers are encouraged to seek a range of speakers, including varied backgrounds and expertise. Proposals demonstrating a diverse panel will be given priority consideration. Each presenter may be involved in at most three workshops.

Two types of workshops will be organized: regular workshops and rapid workshops.

Regular workshops are 90 minutes long. Typically, a workshop will have up to 3 speakers, one of whom may be the Organizer / Chairperson. The Chairperson will introduce the session and speakers and actively support an audience-based participation/discussion. Regular workshops are to be interactive and should provide an update of the subject matter, including current controversies, via short presentations (20 – 23 minutes) and a floor discussion/question period of minimum 20 minutes.

Rapid workshops are 45 minutes long, and consist of at most 3 short presentations of 10 minutes each. Fifteen minutes should be reserved for questions/discussion (either in 5 min. slots after each talk or a 15 min. period at the end).

The workshop organizer will be asked to indicate whether they wish to be considered for a regular workshop, a rapid workshop, or both. The final decision on rapid versus regular will be made by the Scientific Program Committee.
