There is no formal program. The aim of Stringmasters is to stimulate the creation of spontaneous working groups to tackle the problems presented. So participants are encouraged to come to the meeting equipped with problems and interesting questions.

Participants of StringMasters are free to interact with each other or to form new research groups, as they see fit. Participants who have open problems to present will be asked to do so in an informal manner. Researchers will be encouraged to form groups working on those problems which find enough interest. People will be free to switch groups.

The workshop will take place in a dedicated Discord channel. Link will be provided to participants via email. To register, either register to IWOCA 2021 or email conte [at]
