Interactive Session

For all students or other attendees, who would like to share their work: we have 4 large Mac-screens for electronic posters/slides, which are located in the Coffee Break area.

If you like to present a poster/slides during the breaks, please send a PDF-file to us before Sunday (July, 22) night and we will set up everything for you.


Social Program

We will be organizing a trip to the city centre of Shanghai on Sunday (July, 22). As it is hot during the day, we will meet in the afternoon at 5pm in the hotel lobby of Parkyard Hotel.

If you join, we will invite you for dinner, too.
