(Day-1: Sharing of developments and findings between CRISP/RIPS teams)

We hope that each CRISP/RIPS team will have a poster in the poster session and will give a talk in a breakout session (A or B). The poster will automatically be given a slot with the title of the award. Poster size limits will be announced in October. Details for submitting your title, 50-word abstract and list of authors for the Breakout Session presentation are given under the Presentation Submissions tab of the website ( With just over 50 research teams, we can expect about 12 minutes per presentation, assuming 5-6 presentations per session.
