Workshops provide the opportunity to discuss specific topics among a small group of experienced persons. They produce reports on the current state of their subject field.

A summary report is presented at the conference in a special session. It should include both consensus and controversial positions. The report should bring the conference as a whole up to date on the field, point to resources in the field, and make recommendations (e.g. about standards, policies, tools). A fuller written report may be published elsewhere.

Each workshop is managed by an organizer, who is him or herself an expert in the field.

Attendance at workshops is limited. Attendees are selected by the workshop organizer, usually on the basis of a position paper. Experience shows that when attendance exceeds 20 active participants seated around a table, discussion is replaced by formal presentations. Organizers may, at their discretion, allow a small number (5-10) of observers to sit in on sessions if room capacity permits.

Full Day Sessions: 9:00am - 5:00pm
