All video recordings of the RQI-N 2018 talks are now online.
RQI-N2018 will feature invited talks of 30min, complemented by contributed talks of 15min and plenty of time for discussions. There will be also a poster session and a related poster flash session in which participants will have 90 seconds to focus the attention on their poster’s topic. Finally, a panel session, held by renowned experts of RQI, will discuss the future of the field, with a specific emphasis on present and future research lines.
You can download the full program as PDF here, and the abstracts of all the contributions here.
