Meeting Format

The format of the meeting will follow that of previous conferences, in which the focus will be on discussion, led from the floor by two session chairpersons. Sessions will begin with an introduction intended to summarize the state of the art and the most prominent challenges in the field. The subsequent presentations should comprise brief summaries of methods and major results only, allowing time for discussion. So: a general background of the Session topics will be given by the chairpersons; therefore, the background does not need to be presented. As a guideline, aim for five slides or 5-8 minutes, maximum.

The schedule has been organized on the basis of topics submitted during registration. Speakers should approach their session chairs and confirm with them the arrangements for their session. This allows for flexibility in the program.
