Conference Topics

The conference is organised as a series of parallel Thematic Sessions, with a list of tentative topics given below.

Oral and Virtual presentations & Posters ALLOWED

Each delegate can present 1 contribution and 20 minutes, including questions, will be given for oral presentations.

No specific template is required for posters.

Proposal of new sessions is welcomed.
