33 symposia were selected by the program committee. Up to two short communications from student participants were added to the list of speakers after the deadline for registration. Student participants could apply for giving a short communication in the symposia while submitting their poster abstract. The symposium organizers selected the student talks from these abstracts. In addition, student participants could apply for a talk in one of the two Breaking News Sessions.
