WINIR Symposia are relatively smaller events, with an attendance of around 80, funded and organised by WINIR, usually held over 2-3 days. Contrary to WINIR Conferences, WINIR Symposia are thematically focused, meaning that all submissions must be on the symposium theme, in line with WINIR’s aims and research priorities. All attendees must be WINIR members.
