There will be 2 90 minute Research Challenge sessions on Thursday and Friday afternoon.
We have identified 5 themes for multi-disciplinary / computational research.
Participants must indicate their interest in participation in at most 2 themes - primary and secondary. 
Depending on the response we may choose to conduct all 5 themes in parallel over both 
sessions or design an alternative scenario.
Participants are also free to propose additional multi-disciplinary themes or propose
merging or splitting themes.
