Technical Program


This year we will continue the fun and educational tradition of the extended 3 hour tutorials given on the Sunday before the conference. These tutorials give a deep insight into selected research and development topics and serve both as an expert review of the field for all, as well as an introduction for newcomers. We are offering 12 hot topics led by some of the most recognized and experienced scientists in the field. All tutorials come with a set of slides which are an indispensable source of information that you will not find anywhere else! Students get one free ticket but nobody should miss this opportunity. Confirm your participation early in advance as tickets will be limited. We look forward to welcoming you on Sunday June, 10th at 8:30 AM.
