Industry Session

We plan to have an Industry Session on the afternoon of the 2nd day of the workshop, which has the goal to bring together researchers from academia with practicioners from industry and to provide a forum to foster discussion of applied research topics, exchange of ideas and networking opportunities.

The industry session will consist of an applied research oriented keynote speech, an applied research session with contributions from both industry and academics, with a focus on applied research and industrial applications, as well as an industry pitch session, followed by networking around industry posters/presentations/demos.

 

Social Program

On the first day, we plan to have a small reception after the end of the sessions.

On the second day, we plan to organize a guided tour of the city of Winterthur, followed by the workshop dinner in a local restaurant.
