WG members are invited to present new ideas or the findings of papers for 15-20 minutes and receive feedback from the rest of the group. The webinar is explicitly open to controversially debate new research ideas; no papers are circulated in advance. From our experiences so far, we will discuss how to proceed with the working group and organize physical workshops deepening cooperation and resulting in joint publications in 2021.
