E-Poster Discussions
These are discussion sessions based on posters selected around certain topics/subtopics. Differently from last year’s conference, this year, we will have brief (2 minutes max) overview of each e-poster before the discussion part starts. We encourage you to visit the relevant e-posters before joining a discussion session. Please note that with the search function in the gallery, you will be able to filter the posters of a certain discussion session.

The E-Poster Discussion Sessions and E-posters included are listed below. On the list, the e-posters in each Discussion Session are listed in the order of E-Poster Numbers while the order in the Sessions has been planned differently by the chairs of each session.
