Symposia present thematic information to the audience, in the format of regular presentations. A typical symposium will be a 2-hour long, single-session event. Exceptionally symposia of 2+2 hours will be considered. Presentations should be in multiples of 15 minutes (10 min for presentation+ 3 min for discussion+ 2 min for the audience to move between rooms) so that the timing of symposia follows that of the contributed talk sessions.
Symposia can (and are encouraged to) include a dedicated discussion time, also in multiples of 15 minutes. Priority will be given to symposia related to the central theme of the conference but high-quality proposals addressing emerging topics or significant syntheses will be also considered. All symposium organisers and speakers must be registered participants (as early bird registrants).
