Workshops 9 - 17h. There is separate registration (but no separate fee) for the workshops.


The exhibit is accessible from the conference start to the end of the sessions on Sunday. See the preliminary program of demonstrations.


The conference aims to webcast the presentations. The talks will be broadcast live as well as recorded. Anyone using a web browser with a media player plug-in will be able to "attend" the conference, either in real time, or after the end of the conference and select the papers one wish to hear. If any of the speakers wish not to be broadcasted or recorded, this will of course be respected.
