The workshop will consist of a variety of activities, including plenary presentations, informal talks, discussions, and a session for interactive demos. The workshop is co-located with the INRIA-McGill-UVic workshop on computational geometry.

General Information

The workshop will take place at McGill University's Bellairs Research Institute and will be held Friday 9 February to Friday 16 February. Participants should plan to arrive at the Bridgetown airport in the afternoon on Friday. Shared taxi service (approximately 35 USD one way) will be organized via a Google spreadsheet. Note that when you are in Barbados, prices are always quoted in Barbados dollars, but you can always pay with US dollars as there is a fixed 2 Barbados to 1 USD exchange rate. The collocated computational geometry workshop has an excellent page listing other practical information.

The Bellairs facilities are relatively primitive (and inexpensive). Accommodation is very basic with double (or triple) occupancy rooms and in most cases shared bathrooms. It all feels more like a cottage rather than hotel, so there are few distractions such as those typically found in hotels. With some meals included according to scheduling constraints, food and accommodation costs between 70 and 85 USD per day. Reservations must be made through the workshop organizers. Due to space limitations, participation at the workshop is by invitation only.
