The agenda will be posted once it has been finalized.

The workshop is structured around short research talks (25 minutes), mainly in the morning, discussion and small-group time (mainly in the afternoon), and two long "plenary" style talks (50 minutes, Thursday and Friday mornings).
 
 
Until then, the basic plan (sketched below) will be to have one "plenary" style talk (at the beginning of the day) on a general inference-related topic, followed by 4-5 short research talks. Lunch will be followed by a general discussion, which will be followed by unstructured time for small-group discussion and time for collaboration and interaction.
