Special Sessions (SS)
Special Sessions will include a panel of invited speakers on cross-cutting topics and will be even organized by companies. SS could include presentation of suitable papers submitted to the conference.
5-in-5 oral presentations
During this lively session, authors will be allocated a five minutes slot to underline their research results through a five slides presentation. Presentations will run in parallel in thematic kiosks within the same hall, allowing delegates to seamlessly move from one kiosk to another during the 1-minute break between consecutive presentations.
The unique format of this session will encourage interaction between delegates and authors, and give the participants the opportunity to get a flavor of subjects other than their own specialty.
Physical Poster Boards will bear poster presentations during the coffee and lunch breaks
Special Sessions, organized by field experts, will include theme talks by distinguished Lecturers, round-table discussions and paper presentations on hot topics.
