                           Kick-off Meeting 26 February

                           The proposed format for the workshop
                           is to have a day and a half (with an
                           overnight stay), where each student will
                           have a 1 hour presentation and
                           discussion session. It is proposed that
                           the session will contain a broad
                           overview of the student‟s research and
                           then the presentation of a paper that the
                           student is currently working on.
                           Alternatively a relevant paper from the
                           literature can also be discussed.
