Last minute our workshop got moved to a suboptimal room, and last second moved back. While the projection surface was set up we almost lost our first invited speaker Pavel Tomancak. But after this pretty hectic beginning the rest of the afternoon turned out to be great. Lots of very diverse and interesting talk, and good discussions with many attendees. Find below some impressions and the presentation slides.

Thanks for your interest,
the BIC orga team
