Participants should send an abstract (300-400 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30.06.2021. Please specify in which session (below) you would like to present. Since the sessions are small and discussion-oriented, we would find a date and time in September 2021 that fits the attendees’ schedules the best.
The workshop will be held in September 2021 and consists of six 90-minute sessions organised around the topics mentioned in the below table. Each session is led by a more experienced researcher and has only three presenters (individuals or groups). The focus is on the discussions after the presentations, where the small group has enough time to engage meaningfully in providing others with feedback, comments, and ideas. There will be a final session with all participants, where we collectively discuss future plans and research directions.
