The event will be over three days (10-12 June), with first and third days at the Hanasaari Conference Center and the second at Aalto Campus. The workshop dinner will on the first day, and the poster session on the second. Invited talks are allocated a 30 minutes slot each, and 20 minutes is reserved for the contributed talks. The preliminary programme is as follows:
