Workshop outputs: The results of this workshop will be a chapter in the BEES proceedings. The chapter of this workshop will be based on the concept note and the discussions during the workshop. This chapter will also enlist all the workshop participants.
Registration: Is free, but it is compulsory to register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
