Scientific Program

The workshop will have plenary sessions with invited and contributed papers presented orally, as well as a poster session. The invited talks will be chosen to review the status and the recent advances in the different areas. Several social events will be organized around the workshop. Below you find a coarse classification of the workshop topics, this will be refined with the abstract subjects submitted.
