2012 Conference Update

Dear Friends,


Our program is expanding.


Every day we receive new exciting proposals. At least 200 hours of lectures and meetings are already scheduled. No time to be bored whatever your area of interest or your language: every hour you will have either a lecture, a workshop, a film or a SIG meeting concerning this area.


And if you really do not find any, why not visit the resource room, the vendor’s room or one of our exhibitions? Make sure to be there on Sunday morning and not to leave until Wednesday evening because of our program will start at top speed and the latest lecture Wednesday night will be no less exciting than the ones proposed on Monday or Tuesday.
