PLPR 2016 in Bern will continue with the successful format of previous PLPR conferences. We maintain the standard 3-day conference scheme and the tradition of organizing diverse social events. We are also continuing the new format of full-day excursions (introduced by the Haifa conference) and plan to establish a full-day PhD workshop.
