Overview Talks: Given
the large number of parallel sessions, it would be difficult for participants to gain an
overview of more than one topic. To address this problem, we have organized a number of
overview talks to be given in twice-daily sessions throughout the week. They are aimed at
providing participants with an up-to-date review of developments in important NSS and MIC
We have invited world-leading
authorities as speakers, and emphasized that they will be talking to an audience with
varied scientific backgrounds.
All our eminent speakers are enthusiastic about presenting their subject to such an
audience, and discussing the inter-disciplinary significance of their field.
Poster sessions have
the following characteristics and requirements:
- All posters can be in position throughout
the conference. In addition, specific times, during the daily poster sessions.
- as indicated in the timetable, each
poster session is related (at least approximately) to an oral session taking place the
- the chairman of the corresponding oral
session will briefly advertise the poster session and, possibly, the posters in that
- the authors (presenters) of the posters
will be asked to present at their poster during the poster session and a poster session
chairman will check that it is the case. This will be a necessary condition to be
fulfilled by a paper to be accepted for publication in the Conference Records (and
presumably also for TNS).
