Like the Singapore congress, this program will be breaking away from the traditional mold of loosely related papers. Moderators and speakers chosen for their expertise in selected areas will summarize presentations, clearly delineate opposing views and attempt to reach a consensus. They will assist participants in evaluating the information presented. Monday through to Thursday will be plenary sessions with parallel sessions in between.  

The objectives of the congress will be achieved in a four day program, starting on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will consist of formal ex cathedra, tightly coordinated lectures. These lectures are intended to present and debate what is reasonably known in the field. E  poster presentations will illustrate worldwide scientific progress in the field. All presentations will be included in the proceedings, available at the time of the congress.  

More information will be added to the website regularly so please visit on a regular basis for the latest information or leave your email address and you will be updated automatically. 

Looking forward to meeting many of you in Antwerp, October 2019,
