Our intent is to create a lively, interactive
discussion, to foster brainstorming and community building. Registration
will be open to all. However, we strongly encourage participants
to submit (one or more) brief (1-page) responses to the challenge
statement, either as:
- Descriptions of existing research projects relevant to the
challenge statement (preferably with pointers to published papers
and/or online resources);
- Position papers outlining potential research projects.
Be creative and forward-thinking in these proposals: think of
the future, and think big!
There will be no formal publication of proceedings. Instead we
will circulate all submitted papers to participants in advance of
the workshop, via the workshop website, and invite participants
to revise/update/embellish their contributions in response to everyone
else’s contributions. Our plan is to write a post-workshop
report, which will draw on both the submitted papers and the discussions
during the workshop. This report will lay out a suggested agenda
for both short-term and long-term research in response to the challenge,
and act as a roadmap for subsequent workshops and funding proposals.
Inquiries and submissions should be sent to the workshop chair,
