2010 LRNC Programme

Conference Programme

Researchers will have 30 minutes for presentation of the main results of their work, 20 minutes is reserved for the discussants, giving comments on the paper and 10 minutes is available for discussion with participants. Each workshop includes one paper presentation. Each round of workshops, there will be two parallel workshop sessions. The chairman of the workshop closely monitors the timeschedule in order to make sure that all speakers are allotted equal time. Discussants will receive the paper a month before the conference date in order to give them time to prepare their notes. The organizers stress the informal nature of the conference. For this reason we urge speakers and discussants not to prepare written speaches as these tend to take up too much time.
