The conference takes place from Monday morning 9:00 to Wednesday at 13:00

A reception (drinks + pickles) is organized on Sunday evening (18:00 – 20:00) in the lobby of the hotel. The registration desk is open and posters can be already displayed in the poster area.

The traditional conference dinner takes place on Monday at 19:30 (included in registration fees).

During the conference, there are no parallel sessions. The objective is to keep all participants together and allow them sharing their experience. Each oral session starts with an invited or keynote speaker, followed by two or three regular talks of 20 minutes.
There will be four sessions of oral pitch-like presentations of posters (2 min. for each poster).
