Workshops can provide an opportunity to address a wide variety of subject matter, including scientific, technological, managerial, and developmental issues. The workshop format works well for subject areas that are new, complex, rapidly evolving, potentially controversial, interdisciplinary, or in other circumstances in which panel/group discussion better contributes to clarifying and disseminating knowledge, know-how or policy.
There should ideally be a clear output from a workshop – a consensus that can be reported, a new research programme outlined, a best practice agreed, a disagreement resolved (or at least more clearly specified!).
Proposed workshops should align with the conference themes.
There should be a clear distinction between workshops and the scientific-technical sessions. Possible formats include:
- Panel discussions.
- Mixed presentations and interactive workshop
- Roundtable discussions
We will consider any other workshop format that facilitates lively and constructive discussion of an issue.
