The objective is to support professionals (especially students and early-career professionals) to learn topics of rising interest, engage in intensive discussion, and explore the topic from different perspectives. A workshop could include, but need not be limited to, introductory mini-courses, case study sessions, creation of collaborative projects, mentorship programs, career training sessions, and panel discussions on grant-writing or professional opportunities. A technical session should align with the themes/topics of the conference and consist of either oral presentations or panel discussions focusing on a specific topic.  You are also encouraged to discuss your ideas with the conference chair/co-chairs. The proposal submission is due on February 28, 2023 (closed).
