Contributed talks are expected to be 15+5 minutes long, except for those marked in red, which should be 7+3 minutes long.
Posters are welcome, but need to be registered through the registration website by the 1st of July.

Recommended poster size: posters should be no larger than format A0. Each pinwall is 120 (horizontal) x 140 (vertical) cm .

The program of the Open Time Workshop can be found at this link.

The meeting is partially financed by IWF, EUROPLANET, and AUSTROSPACE.
