The workshop designed around the theme of the meeting led by David Rousseau and Javier Calvo-Amodio: Systems Science: Identifying Research Themes, Teams and Priorities, will run four sessions, Monday through Thursday, between 1:30 and 5:45 p.m. each day.

There is also a Friday afternnon/Saturday morning field trip this year, led by incoming president Peter Tuddenham. 

Sunday workshops and the Fri/Sat Field Trip do not include refreshment breaks or lunch. There are several cafeterias close by for refreshments/lunch on Sunday and those attending the field trips will receive information about what to bring during the conference.
