Author instructions

The length of the extended abstract should be between 1000 and 1500 words, preceded by a short summary of 150 words. Submission is required in two copies (a normal version and a blind version) in PDF format. The normal version should include Author names and affiliations + contact email of author for correspondence. The blind version should have no author names, nor self-references or other means of identification of the authors.
Please send the 2 copies in PDF format with the file names:
  • Normal copy: FIRST_AUTHOR_NAME_full.pdf (e.g.: Dewey_normal.pdf)
  • Blind copy: FIRST_AUTHOR_NAME_blind.pdf (e.g.: Dewey_blind.pdf)
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the scientific committee. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to present their work as a 45 min talk. The workshop will conclude with a general discussion about the various topics that have been presented.

Structure of presentations and discussions

It is assumed that participants in the workshop share a common background, to this end a set of reading will be suggested (partly centered on the previous work of the invited speakers).
Detailed tutorials by two invited speakers. Invited speakers will be asked to provide a review of their work and theoretical framework in detail (e.g. through two lectures of one hour). Followed by discussion and clarification. 
A relatively small number of submitted and invited communications (8-10), all of them blindly peer-reviewed will be discussed (30min presentation and 30 minute discussion) with the goal of integrating the contributions to the special issue.
