We plan to have oral presentations (30 minutes + 10 minutes discussion) as well as a poster session. The poster session will be preceded by a special session where each presenter has 5 minutes to introduce his/her poster.

The abstract should include the title and indicate whether it is intended for an oral presentation or a poster. Abstracts should not exceed two pages (including tables, examples and references) and they should be in 12-point type with single line spacing and 2,5 cm. margins.

Abstracts will be reviewed by an external panel and the reviewing process will be double-blind. At most two abstracts, one of which must be co-authored, can be submitted.
