Abstract submission

The poster session is now full and new submissions will not be accepted

To accommodate more diverse presentations into the workshop program, the committee has decided to include a poster session to the program. The poster session is designed to diversify the program and facilitate small-group discussions during the workshop. It gets dedicated 90 minutes in the program on day 2, but the posters would be available to the participants during breaks throughout the workshop. If you are coming to the workshop and have something to show, please submit your abstract for the consideration. The technical committee will consider new submissions while we have room in the poster session.
