Symposium Structure  

The 4-day (April 15–18) symposium will consist of:

Morning plenary sessions followed by three concurrent topic sessions on Days 1–3, to assess progress towards FUTURE objectives;
A morning plenary session on Day 4 to appraise current and future Role of National Programs;
A plenary discussion on the afternoon of Day 4 to provide an overall evaluation of FUTURE progress, and to identify needed changes or adjustments to fulfil program objectives;
Workshops related to the objectives of FUTURE on the day prior to the symposium (April 14).

Scientific sessions will include invited and contributed papers.  Contributed papers will be selected for oral and poster presentation.

Posters will be on display for the entire duration of the symposium.  All coffee breaks will be held in the poster area to maximize opportunities to view these contributions and to interact with presenters.  The poster session/reception is planned for the evening of Day 3, when poster presenters are expected to be available to answer questions.
