I'm happy to announce that we already have the (almost) complete list of contributions and a provisional schedule for the presentations. Also, we invite new participants to cover the two empty slots for talks. Please, don't hesitate to contact for any question or rearrangement.

We encourage all participants to share the content of their contribution, event first abstracts, through the display system when it's available. Will open a second call to attend the talks and participate in the workshop, with and without display contribution. We are still looking for contributions from the industry site and administration. We'll appreciate the dissemination of the event.
