The conference will follow a format tried and tested to a great effect in former FoCM conferences: plenary invited lectures in the mornings, theme-centered parallel workshops in the afternoons. Each workshop extends over three days and the conference will consist of three periods, comprising of different themes. We encourage the participants to attend the full conference.

Each workshop will include "semi-plenary" lectures, of an interest to a more general audience, as well as (typically shorter) talks aimed at more technical audience.
