Program

FOPS 2015 will primarily consist of invited talks, with a handful of contributed talks. Most contributed submissions will be poster presentations.

The invited talks will have a 30 minute time slot, however the speakers are asked to plan on a 20 minute presentation to allow for an extended discussion period. The contributed talks will be allocated a 20 minute time slot, of which 5 minutes are reserved for discussion.
