The structure of the workshop

Lectures will be followed by a 20-minutes discussion in charge of an invited discussant, and by a debate. The Workshop will have no parallel sessions. The meeting is a small format conference; we aim to provide ample space for discussion and informal interaction among participants. Apart from the invited speakers, the two (three at most) authors of the contributed papers selected by the Scientific Committee will present their work (35-40 minutes) on some of the issues proposed by the Organizing Committee. These presentations will be followed by 20-minutes debates.
