Congress program

Congress program

The complete congress program is available as a pdf: June 22 version (this includes a revision of the poster schedule from an earlier version). Please check back prior to the meeting as this will be updated periodically to reflect last minute changes such as talk cancellations. Please also note that the schedule of talks within the program is designed to be viewed in two‐page booklet format such that the times align across rows of the facing pages.

An overview of the program, and a colour map of all congress venues, including accommodation, is available in the ‘schedule-at-a-glance’ here. This is meant to be printed as a single sheet, double-sided, in colour. All attendees will receive a copy in their registration package.

The ‘schedule in brief’ below also provides a summary of the main meeting events:
