Is it true you have games?

How do I know which writers' workshop I am in?

The conference chairs decide on the number and composition of workshop groups. In general, the chairs try to group papers with similarities. So, if you are an author, your paper is assigned to a specific workshop. If you are not an author, you are welcome to freely choose a writers' workshop group. In any case, we ask you to stay with the same workshop during the whole conference.

I have another question. Who can I contact?

Write an e-mail to the conference chair and to the program chair
