Each of the three one-day workshops will consist of one-hour plenary sessions separated by one-hour breaks during which participants may join break-out groups to continue the discussion of a particular presentation or to prepare workshop outputs.
Each day will start at noon, New Zealand time, and conclude at noon, US Mountain time, so as to accommodate participation across time zones. We encourage participants to join at least two one-hour sessions and preferably more.
Presenters will provide their paper/presentation in advance, give a 10-minute overview during the session, and be available to discuss their paper later in the session and in the succeeding break period.
Remote participation in the workshop will use Blue Jeans.
Only registered participants will have access to the online seminars and workshop sessions.
Registration will close on 30th September.
