30 minutes are scheduled for each presentation.

As the colloquium is planned to be interactive, interruptions are possible at any time.

To prepare and facilitate the discussion, every speaker should submit 3-5 slides one week before the colloquium. The slides will be made available to all participants.

The slides will be provided to all participants.
