All scientific sessions will be held in plenary with no parallel sessions, to encourage interaction among participants and different disciplines. Each session will open with a keynote address by invited keynote speakers. Posters will be on display for the duration of the Symposium, with a special poster session on Wednesday Nov. 4th. The symposium will conclude by mid-day Friday 6th November. This will include an inter-disciplinary panel discussion on lessons learned and a final wrap-up to provide conclusions.
