Annual Workshop

We hold our DIO workshop every year in May. Each workshop features around 20 papers and is attended by 60+ researchers from all over the world.

DIO workshops are preceded by a one-day doctoral workshop, during which PhD students meet established faculty, receive feedback on their research, and explore new ideas.
