Academic programme

The detailed overview of the conference is available for download:

Please note that the designation “online” means that at least one contributor will be participating remotely and, at minimum, their block of the session will be available online. In most cases, the majority of participants will be in Lausanne and only one or two contributors will be participating remotely so we encourage in-person conference attendees to go to the designated room to view the talks.

The conference booklet will be published shortly. In the meanwhile, information about specific sections of the programme can be found on their respective pages:
