Parking the car
You will continue in the same direction and drive around the campus to reach the parking Lot 13. To find the parking lot, search (Google) “UCR parking Lot 13”. Please follow the signs and only park in places for Red permits.
Both original research and work that has been published in other venues is welcome!
Authors should submit abstracts of at most ~300 words via (this) Google form. The submission deadline is Friday, September 1st, by the end of the day.
Selected abstracts will be presented as a talk or a poster. The program committee will determine the length of the talks based on the number and content of the abstracts; and they’ll provide more information when they notify you of acceptance.
