Last minute changes !

Please recognize that the opening of the workshop had to be shifted 15 min earlier than previously announced (September 5, 8:15) !

Poster sessions
Due to the large number of posters submitted in the "Tools" section we had to change the composition of the two sessions: During poster session I  posters with numbers PO 1.x/PO 4.x and during the poster session II posters with numbers PO 2.x/PO 3.x will be displayed.

Short Course
Registration for the Short Course is mandatory. A registration form can be found here: Registration form for the Short Course

Scientific Program
Abstracts of the oral presentations are now available for downloading from the web site of the scientific programme.

More than 80 Posters will be displayed during two poster sessions. Abstracts are now available on the web site for the Poster Session I and the Poster Session II.
