The workshop aims at giving some familiarity with the identification of symmetries of plane patterns and their classification with the help of an interactive application. This recent application works as an extension of Atractor's DVD [1] and has a competition version which allows two teams to test their experience and knowledge in the area. Several options allow the level of difficulty to be adapted to the experience/age of users.
