34 symposia have been selected by the program committee. Up to two short communications from student participants will be added to the list of speakers after the deadline for registration. Student participants can apply for giving a short communication in the symposia while submitting their poster abstract. The symposium organizers will select the student talks from these abstracts. In addition, student participants can apply for a talk in one of the two Breakling News Sessions.
