The program will consist of about 30 invited talks (40min), including 5 tutorial lectures (60 min), and there will be a poster session with up to 120 posters on Wednesday evening, taking place in the City Hall (Gemeindeamt) of Mauterndorf.
On Sunday, February 12 at 5 p.m., registration will be starting, together with a welcome reception.
The presentations will be scheduled between Monday morning and Friday evening. On Friday afternoon, the traditional ski race will be taking place at the Grosseck mountain. On Friday evening at the Farewell Party, the winners of the race will be announced.
After the morning sessions there will be a break between 1 and 5 p.m. for skiing or other activities, followed by evening sessions from 5 to 8:30 p.m.
