The Congress programme will be dominated by Symposia, but there will be room for short courses, workshops, one-day excursions, and business meetings throughout and immediately before the Congress. A wide-ranging social programme is being arranged. The Congress itself will run from 6-14 August and be divided into two parts, separated by Sunday 10 August, when there will be no symposia.
