You may have seen the news that ICSR 2020 is going to be fully virtual this
year and so we're really hoping to do something fresh with the workshop
provision and invite you to be as creative and open-minded as possible in
proposing workshops and/or other activities to be co-hosted with the
conference. These could include, for example:

    (i) traditional workshops/panels

    (ii) debates

    (iii) robot poetry slams

    (iv) science fiction discussions

or any other activities you might like to propose so long as the content is
appropriate and on topic.

The only key requirements are as follows:

    (i) workshop organizers must be able to host the events themselves
(e.g. via Zoom)

    (ii) a (recommended) maximum length of <4 hours to minimize zoom fatigue

so we really encourage you to be creative, and hope you might take this
opportunity to explore something new!
