The workshop program will feature roughly 20 presentations over three days, with a welcome cocktail in the evening of  July 4, preceding the first workshop day. The lunches of July 5, 6 and 7 are included in the workshop registration and will be held at the residence of the Observatoire Océanologique de Banyuls/Mer.

Please note that the exact time of the welcome cocktail has not been finalized yet but will be announced soon. A workshop banquet reserved to the speakers (see the registration page) will happen on Thursday, July 6. If any attendee would like to participate in the workshop banquet, please contact the organizers.

The detailed program is reported below. If the slides from a specific talk are available, they can be downloaded by clicking on the hyperlinked title.
