  1. Hello,

    Thank you for organising this! I really need it and I guess many others need it too.
    I just noted that on this page there is a small mistake, as it says “When: 14th of October”, while the workshop is 14th of November. I thought you may want to correct this to avoid confusion.

    Thank you again, looking forward to the conference!

    Best regards,
    Camilla Marucco
    TY, PhD candidate
