Overview Program

Scientific Program

The scientific program is organised on the basis of a subdivision into specific subjects. Oral and poster contributions by participants are possible. There will be several parallel sessions each day. Three different types of sessions are planned:

1. Day sessions

These sessions cover an entire day. They include two invited speakers in the morning and shorter contributions (15 min.) during the rest of the day.

See Day sessions for an overview.

2. Afternoon sessions

(ii) Afternoon sessions: These sessions consist exclusively of a series of shorter contributions (15 min.).

See Afternoon sessions for an overview.

3. Poster sessions

Poster sessions will be organised in the central hall of the Free University. During the afternoon there will be time to visit the poster sessions and discuss the research presented with the author.
