Discussion of Open Problems

Each day, in the second half of the MORNING session, six (6) additional 5-minute presentations will be made by selected conference participants. Presenters will be selected by the session organizer from the registrants' input on their definition of Open Problems that need to be discussed at the conference.

When you go online to register, there is a section on the registration form where you are required to provide input on defining an Open Problem.

Then during the afternoon session, well-structured breakout groups will refine the definition of the Open Problems in a concrete way as to facilitate the drafting of a white paper describing the findings of the day.
