Oral Presentation Session
This year we are very happy to meet you all in person again after such a long time of virtual life. Therefore you will be able to participate in traditional oral presentation sessions where you can present and discuss your work with colleagues live.
There will be different sessions divided throughout the 4 days of the conference based on the topics they discuss. Your oral presentations will be placed in these sessions depending on your research topic. Exact topics, session times, and dates will be posted here by 15th December.
Please remember that the number of oral presentations will be very limited, so we ask you to register as soon as possible.
