The workshop gathered over 53 participants and offered very interesting talks and posters. We received 23 submissions and admitted 11 long papers and 4 posters. The overall acceptance rate was of 47% for oral presentations and of 65% for all submissions. We had one invited speaker (Kathrin Steyer, president of Europhras).
