Accepted contributions can be presented as a talk or as a poster. For oral presentations, speakers are alloted 20 minutes each comprising a 15 minute presentation and 5 minutes for questions. Additionally, selected outstanding contributions may be presented in the form of a keynote lecture with 40 minutes alloted. Posters should be printed in size A1 with portrait orientation.
