These are interesting to all as long as they do not resemble any form of a sales pitch. The organizers will be very careful to filter these presentations while at the same time welcoming the wonderful research done by companies. These announcements often inspire creative ideas in the research community. This is a place where alliances can be formed.

Abstracts should be submitted per the IR WORKshop 2017 Industry R&D Announcement Submission Template.
