Please note that the duration given to your oral presentation includes 3 minutes for questions and discussion (for example, a 15-minute talk should be 12 minutes of presentation and 3 minutes of discussion).
The authors are kindly asked to upload their presentations on computers available in the main hall in the morning of the respective talk from 08:30 onwards up to 30 minutes prior to the time block of the session. Computer assistants will be available to help.
