This is a first attempt to hold a close-by meeting to allow community members to present their work without having to wait for an annual appointment. There will be a meeting like this every two months, unless it conflicts with the annual conference as it will happen in March. To allow for a lean organization, there is no real review process, but only abstracts outside the community topics will be rejected. A peculiarity of these meetings will be that they are concentrated in a rather limited time slot, two hours only centered on the average time slot of the participants, to allow everyone to participate with the least average discomfort possible. Obviously, the recordings of all presentations will remain available on the platform even after the meeting has closed.



The WOCST Organising Committee cordially invites you to submit abstracts (3 pages maximum) of your works inherent to the Community topics.

The first 25 abstracts submitted will be accepted even from authors not registered to the Community and the speakers will receive a complimentary account to attend the meeting (that is not a free registration to the Community).

Conference language: English
Presentation: Oral or Poster

Please write your abstract following the template:

All accepted abstracts will be published in the Book of Abstracts (with ISBN).

Meeting start: January 24, 2022
