ISMA BEst Workshop Agenda


SDSC Auditorium

Workshop logistics

The duration of each talk should be about 15 minutes (18 minutes maximum), with 2-5 minutes of questions after the talk. The total time for each presentation (including questions) should not exceed 20 minutes.

At the end of each session, we will have about 10 minutes for further questions and discussion on that session's subject. Chairs of each session will need to coordinate those discussions.
