The number of presentations is limited to 2 per participant.
Tutorial lectures (60 min), plenary lectures (40 min including questions), invited talk (30 min including questions), standard oral presentations (20 min including questions) and poster presentations in each session are planned.
For oral presentations overhead projector and computer projector are available.

The size of the poster board will be approximately 100 cm (width) x 120 cm (height). We are also planning the possibility of presenting "electronic posters".
