Conference Schedule

with or without individual talks

Due to the topicality of the conference subject we would like the spirit of the conference to be based on discussion. Therefore, special chaired discussion periods will be provided when people can present one or two transparencies, on any topic they like, related to the session being discussed. People contributing a poster are especially encouraged to actively participate in these discussion periods.

If you are scheduled to give a talk, please review the technical information about available audio-visual equipment.

The schedule includes 5 minutes for questions and discussion for each talk.
