To avoid no-shows and overlapping, and to prevent young investigators to feel disregarded when they present their fresh science data, this year poster sessions will be organized at a time when no other scientific session is scheduled. 

The Poster Sessions and the Oral Presentations in Poster Area will be moderated by some experts in the field identified within the working groups and by some senior scientists with the aim of offering a rewarding scientific experience to young investigators.


Timing for the Poster Sessions during the congress has changed as follows:

 Saturday 17th – Sunday 18th
