Hi Joris,

No, they will most likely not be able to fund travel costs, unfortunately.
So far I've heard from Sylvia Petrovic-Majer that she would be interested
to set up a workshop (in a team of 2-4 people): are any others planning on
going / would like to participate? Ideas for topics for such a workshop are
also welcome!
It would be good discuss it further in our next WG call, and then I can
update Kenny in January to see what the best option would be for us to

Best, Lieke
