Call for Contributions

We invite contributions related to the topics of the workshop, with two poster sessions where participants will have the opportunity to present their work. It could concern the presentation of a specific research work or a general overview of a project performed in their laboratory. A three minutes teaser presentation per contributor will be scheduled before each poster session.

For contributing, we invite interested participants to submit a 1-page (two-columns) extended abstract following the IEEE conference PDF format.
