As you may remember, the purpose of the meeting is not that authors just present their work but rather that the community interactively discusses the papers and gives in-depth comments with the purpose of helping improve the manuscripts. We will be sending you another email with download links for the papers to be discussed as well as directions and other practical information a few weeks before the meeting. We hope very much that you will be able to join the meeting. To help us organize, we kindly ask you to sign-up using this link if you would like to attend. If you have any further questions please contact Armand Smits ( or Philipp Tuertscher ( In case you are unable to attend this time but are interested to join our community for future meetings, please let us know through the same link, so that we will keep you on the invitation list. Please distribute this invitation to other staff and PhD students within (or outside) your group for whom our community might be relevant as well.   We are looking forward to seeing you in May.
