All Workshops will be delivered in the two days before and one day after the Solar World Congress. Workshops provide a more detailed and structured treatment of relevant topics. Workshops are generally either 4 or 8 hours in length. Proposals for multiple-day workshops will also be accepted.

Workshops will require separate registration and fees. Fees will be set by the conference organizers, taking into consideration the estimated expenses that will be incurred in presenting the workshop.

The Workshop Committee will select workshops for the SOLAR World Congress.
