Workshops are aimed at encouraging interaction and dialogue between a smaller group of speakers and the broader audience. The format of workshops is flexible. As an example, a workshop might consist of a few short talks providing an overview followed by a facilitated discussion, or they may be a focused, round-table type discussions to synthesize participants’ insights of a particular challenge for humanity. The duration of a workshop can be up to 2 hours, and will be scheduled in parallel with symposia and contributed sessions. All workshop organisers and speakers must be registered participants (as early bird registrants).
