    Only a limited number of presentations are planned and a policy of "a different speaker for each presentation" will be strictly enforced. This policy will allow discussions during and after the presentations and encourage an active participation, which is not possible at larger conferences. An important goal of the conference should be not only to know what others do, but to foster new collaborations and joint projects. We, therefore, encourage the presentation of ongoing projects and recent results. Moreover, the conference is intended as a forum for exchange of experience and results from practical projects, development of models, algorithms, and implementation of software.
