Please find below details about the virtual format of this year's edition. The program features exciting new elements (fireside chats, focused lectures, best practices discussions, mentoring sessions etc.) to facilitate interaction and networking.
The activities will be scheduled as a single track, with the exception of poster sessions where multi-track channels will be used to accommodate a larger number of presentations.
