The delegates will be working in teams on the workshop topics via Skype, email, Webex, Slack, Zoom, etc. with the kickoff meeting foreseen early May. To each team, a mentor will be assigned to support the working group’s advance in their research. For the 2022 Workshop, five topics have been defined by the Workshop Organizing Committee andIPMC.
