Each full paper will be presented in 15 minutes. A discussing person will be assigned to each full paper in order to stimulate the discussion. The discussion is planed for 15 minutes for each full paper.

Each short paper will be presented as a poster. To advertise the posters, each poster will get 3 minutes to introduce the main ideas and results in the poster advertisements session. The posters will be placed on A1 size boards and presented in the afternoon session.

The workshop room will be equipped with OHP + computer with MS Office. You can also send us your presentation in advance, so that we can upload and try it out before the start of the workshop.
