In addition to an extensive scientific program which will focus on enabling discussions rather than offering educational talks only, we will hold multiple Break Out Sessions to also allow focused work in smaller groups throughout the entirety of the 2.5 days of the meeting. 


To additionally allow especially young researchers to showcase their work, the program will include poster sessions.
