Workshop Signup at the Centre

There are eight workshops and since the conference is quite large, there will be a signup system. It will be simple and straight forward: at the CMC info corner, there will be one signup sheet for every workshop where you can write your name. If you are several participants from the same centre, consider to go to different workshops.
