Welcoming Address & Reception

Each session will be introduced by invited reviews (25 min + 5 min discussion). Several invited talks (20 min + 5 min discussion) are especially aimed at promoting junior researchers (post-doctoral fellows and senior PhD students). Contributed talks (15 min + 5 min discussion) will complete the program. Posters (max. A0 portrait format) will be presented during the afternoon coffee breaks just in front of the conference lecture hall.
