will not be considered as workshop registration. Only Congress and
Student members can register for the workshops. On-site registration
will be possible for some workshops if space is available.
In this Circular the workshops BWO 04, BWO 05 have been moved from
Pre-Congress to During-Congress (DWO 16, DWO 17, respectively) timing.
Workshops BWO 06, BWO 07, BWO 08, DWO 13, DWO 14, DWO 15, DWO 18,
