The following Workshops and Tutorials are given on Sunday June 19th at the same venue as the main conference: Lindholmen Conference Centre. There are five full day workshops and five half day workshops.

The IV16 offers the opportunity for participation in several workshops and tutorials, which cover a specific topic of interest in the ITS area. Workshops aim to foster discussion on issues related to the field, emphasizing the interaction between the presenter and the audience. Each workshop will have a number of paper presentations and/or invited talks without paper submission.

Note that you need to register to the workshops. This is done at the registration site. You can register for both the IV16 conference and a workshop, or for a workshop only. Lunch and coffee break(s) are included in all workshops. It is possible to attend two half day workshops if one is in the morning and one in the afternoon.
