To check to which session your contribution is associated use the OCS system at, after log in, click on your contribution and check the TRACK status. The word “track” in OCS is a synonymous of “session”!

Setting up the sessions we tried to follow as much as possible your recommendations but you can easily understand it is impossible to follow all of them! So if you are not satisfied write directly to the conference director at specifying your reasons and suggesting possible program modifications. And we will do our best to find a solution. Please remember that the classification in oral/poster is very frequently not related to the quality of the contribution!

Since we are a bit late with this programme release we decided to postpone the early registration deadline to the 22nd of July.
