Conference format

The conference includes invited general and topical lectures, contributed papers presented in poster sessions, hot topic presentations and two workshops. A short number of outstanding contributed papers covering relevant issues will be selected by the International Scientific Committee (ISC) and their authors will be asked to give a short (15 min) oral presentation in the hot topic sessions. The conference timetable can be found here.

Contributed papers will be published in Europhysics Conference Abstracts (ECA) in electronic form, to be distributed to participants at the beginning of the conference. All contributed papers will be refereed by the ISC and may be rejected on scientific grounds.

No publication will occur if the official registration, including fee, for one of the authors has not been received by May 15th, 2012.
