Program

The technical program will include four days of oral and poster presentations. Each meeting day will have one or two plenary speakers invited to address global issues related to the Congress theme. The 9 Main Topics and associated subtopics will be proportionately divided among the days of the Congress in concurrent sessions. Each Main Topic will have several invited session speakers to provide critical reviews of the subject matter, the state-of-the art, and projections of where the field is headed. A central focus will be the poster presentations and interactive panel discussions.
