Due to Covid-19, the workshop will be organized as an online workshop. Originally it was three weeks long (two weeks in São Paulo and one week in Natal).
In this new format, its duration will be only one week. The talks will be scheduled for Monday-Friday, June 8-12, from 8 am - 1 pm.
It will consist of several 25-minutes talks which will be broadcast live using the Zoom platform.
The talks will use sharescreen with either slides or notes on the screen, and 5 minutes will be reserved for questions after every talk.
The full list of speakers and the final event program is going to appear on this website in the future.
