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 hôtel. The registration desk is open and posters can be already displayed in the poster area.

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 flash presentations of posters (2 min. for each poster).
