During the two days, two groups had extensive meetings and discussions. In the first day, each group presented the overview of their research methodologies, and then demonstrated their tools.
The tools demonstration session was followed by the discussion on research ideas in general. In the second day, each research idea was elaborated into more details on the white board for discussion. Finally, both research groups had agreed on the common research directions, a concrete plan to conduct research, and some potential high-impact journals and conferences for submitting the research results.
