Poster Session

After a fruitful set of lectures let’s have casual moments where everyone can discuss with the speakers, chat about where the field is going, and present their ongoing work on posters…

Posters will be presented during the lunch breaks and the cocktail. Poster presenters have to register for this session (the frames are portrait oriented – 170cm tall and 90cm wide).
