Symposium structure

The Symposium structure will include 6 parallel tracks of oral sessions, NetWorking sessions (NeWS), e-posters and virtual technical tours.

The traditional oral sessions will be organized as a set of oral presentations, followed by a moderated live discussion in which speakers will answer the questions received by the attendees in the Q&A box.

The NetWorking sessions are primarily focused on open discussion among participants, so they will be highly interactive live-streamed sessions, during which attendees can join the debate with camera and microphone. The sessions will be opened by short introductory lectures that will kick-start the critical discussion among participants.

E-posters will be made available to Symposium delegates as PDF files, accessible on-demand throughout the conference. Attendees will be able to comment and ask questions to the authors via Q&A and chat.

As per tradition, the Symposium will also include two technical tours which this year will be held virtually. Detailed info will be available soon.
