ISBW14 Workshops

ISBW14 has loads of exciting and educational workshops lined up. See the workshop schedule and descriptions below to determine which workshops you would like to register for. If you select a workshop that spans multiple timeslots, you are expected to participate in the entire workshop. You may register for as many or as few workshops as you like, but do not register for multiple workshops that are scheduled to take place at the same time.

Please Note: The steering committee is still working out a few details for the workshop schedule and the schedule is subject to change over the next few days as we tweak those details. We will announce when the schedule is FINAL so that you can proceed confidently with your selections at registration. Thank you for your patience! (2 Dec, 2021)
