Lectures

The main lecture courses (1h15) will be complemented by sessions of questions and anwers, flash poster presentations and poster presentations. The lectures are aimed primarily to PhD students, postdocs, and other young scientists wishing to broaden and deepen their knowledge or to identify new research opportunities. In order to keep the lectures as tutorial as possible, the 20 academic lecturers will give 1-3 talks.
