We will have 4 sub-topics to cover the key scientific questions during the workshop. Each topic will have a key note lead by the coordinator and mentor, focusing on recent developments and challenges in the specific topic, followed by 4-5 short presentations (10 minutes) by ECRs on specific case studies.
This will be then followed by a brain-storming session involving all participants to address some of the challenges raised during the main seminar. Depending upon the participant composition we will divide them into groups to work on specific challenges identified in the main seminar. All will be asked to bring a poster for networking in the afternoon.
On each day we will have a 3 hour morning and afternoon session. A tentative schedule is provided below:
