Symposium structure

The Symposium is structured in oral sessions, a poster session and technical tours. Oral presentations are organized in five parallel tracks, for a total of 38 sessions and 7 workshops.
Workshops are primarily addressed to experts and seeded by a selected number of introductory lectures delivered in order to open discussion between participants.
Poster papers will be presented in an appropriate session, which will always be accessible to Symposium delegates, and discussed on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 15:50 to 16:20.
