Code of Conduct for Audience (full version): The purpose of these talks is to give junior researchers an opportunity to present their on-going work. The attitude should be the one of collaboration when asking questions. Questions during the talk should primarily be about minor clarifications. Broader discussions about the overall line of research and larger confusions are best reserved for the Q&A session. Doing so ensures that we allow the speaker to execute their planned talk with-in the allotted 20 minutes. Any feedback about style or structure of the talk can be shared privately afterwards.


Below is the official schedule for the talks.
