The 2 days of this workshop is a very busy time for us and it is much better if we do not have to care about slides during these days. It would be very much appreciated if you can really provide them on time.

Preferred format is PDF, but if you really need a PPTX it is possible. In this case, please send us both versions, PDF and PPTX. Only PDF versions will be used for online publishing.

The Chaiman also needs a 2-3 sentences to introduce you briefly. You can add it as a comment to your presentation when uploading to EasyChair, or send it to
