This year, the workshop appears virtually as the main conference. To each oral paper is associated a pre-recorded video oral presentation (15 min), which has been made available on the website of the event since the 5th of October. Attendees are welcome to provide questions on the associated commentary section. A synthesis of your questions will be reported by the chairs to the authors, who should have time to respond to them during the live Q&A sessions on the 12th of October. Please note that priority will be given to attendees during these live time slots, so we encourage you to register in order to attend the live Q&A sessions.
