Spring Workshop 2018: Panel Discussion

On May 3, 2018, we organized a panel discussion on Collaboration Between Academia and Practice (CAP). All the presenters have generously agreed to share the video recordings of the event – as well as the presentation slides – with the public. The workshop co-chairs are thankful for this spirit of openness, very much in line with the intent of the workshop to promote collaboration. Presentation slides can be found at the end of this post.
