Parallel Sessions & Titles

To accommodate all your excellent work, we increased sessions in parallel to five (all in all 30). Each one started with an introductory lecture (aside of the late-breaking sessions) giving an update on the state-of-the-art research in that field – a particular thanks to all INTRODUCTORY SPEAKERS!
