The schedule of the scientific program is now final (note that we had to perform some changes on Friday, so double-check the time of your presentation). Some last minute changes are possible. They will be announced through the online program app (see below). We will try as much as possible to keep the presentations schedule untouched. However, the room assignment might still change: we plan to use information from the personalized program to identify popular sessions and we might switch them to larger rooms if needed. The final assignment of sessions to rooms should be available on Sunday 9.

We have developed a brand new progressive web application to allow you to easily browse the program:

It is a fast and mobile-friendly application that allows you to browse the program from any device, by time, stream, participant or even keyword. Before the conference, we will also add practical information like room maps. On a smartphone, you can add it to your home screen as any native application and use it offline after the first use.

You can also use it to create your own selection of sessions, and if you log in, it will be automatically synchronized with your online account in the abstract submission tool: where you can also find a personalized link to a calendar file that you can synchronize with your agenda.

The traditional booklet of abstracts is available as a pdf file here: . Note that you will not get a printed version of it nor a copy on a usb stick. We try to be responsible and avoid waste. A small booklet with an overview of the sessions and practical information will be given to all participants, but we will rely on electronic media for the detailed program.
