Expecting about 90 participants or so (i. e., no "big conference setting") it is planned to have a workshop in the true sense; that is, no parallel sessions, high-visibility of posters, ample of informal possibilities to enter into scientific discussion and discourse, and so on.
Oral presentation (invited keynote talk: 40 min slot incl 5-10 min discussion, invited talk: 20 min slot incl. 5 min discussion; contributed talk: 15 min slot incl. 3 min discussion)
Poster presentation (all posters up all-week, all to be mounted Thursday; poster board size/max. poster size: ~ 140 cm height x 90 cm width, i.e., size of order "DIN-A0 Portrait" recommended; mounting material available on site)
