The WCSNE-2020 encourages the submission of workshop proposals. Workshop duration is 90 minutes. All the accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings. You can consider organising a workshop that is related to WCSNE-2020 topics.

The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conferences themselves. It offers a good opportunity for young researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organisers, but it is expected that they contain ample time for general discussion. The preference is for one day workshops, but other schedules will also be considered.
