Symposium Structure  

A 5-day symposium (March 23-27) will consist of:

  • Plenary sessions in the morning of Days 1-5 to introduce themes of the concurrent sessions to be convened on the same day and in the afternoon of Day 5 to summarize the results and provide wrap-up of the symposium;

  • Concurrent (3-4) theme sessions every day, following a morning plenary session;

  • Pre-symposium concurrent workshops on the two days (March 21-22) prior to the symposium.

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

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 the contributions and to interact with the presenters.
One evening poster session/reception will take place on March 24 (March 25 - CANCELLED).
At this session, poster presenters are expected to be available to answer questions.
