Anybody can make a proposal using this form, then the Conference Workshop Committee will review the proposals and select the best ones, a meeting room for about 50 to 100 people will be reserved for this workshop on either Tuesday June 12th or Thursday June 14th, 2018 in the evening. An open bar will be available in the atrium of the meeting building for the duration of the evening workshops.
There is no cost associated with these workshops.
All it takes is a good idea, and two good chairs, to contact a few people and lead the discussion. You could choose a few speakers with informal presentations to jump start the discussion and then open the debate to the attendance. The goal of these discussions is to generate new projects around new ideas!
If you are interested to chair a workshop, please submit this form.
The full list of workshops will be available soon.
