The Scientific Business Meetings are open to any participant who wishes to be informed about and to participate actively in the Working Parties. The other two days will be devoted to educational lectures, with 7 sessions dealing with the most relevant topics of the field, In keeping with the scientific scope of the WPs and with the Educational purpose of the course, the meeting will allow participants to discuss and interact with all these experts during the sessions and the social events.
