Workshop Organization: Plenaries and Interactive/Poster Sessions
Following the tradition of previous NecSys workshops, the workshop will be single track and will feature: 10 plenary presentations, and 4 interactive poster/interactive sessions of contributed papers (2 per day).
The poster/interactive sections will not be in parallel with the invited plenaries. This nontraditional choice of oral presentation only for the invited speakers and interactive presentations for all contributed papers, is motivated by the interdisciplinary topics of this workshop. In fact, the invited oral presentations will be of tutorial nature while the contributed papers will be organized in interactive poster sessions with limited number of contributions and with ample reserved time slots, thus hopefully stimulating discussions and promoting ideas exchanges.
