The timetable shown below is a preliminary version of the conference programme. We tried to follow your preference of oral/poster presentations, if you made the choice. In case you did not (you have selected "Undefined"), we decided according to the programme needs. We took into account also sessions of the TSD conference, so we tried to avoid to run simultaneously two sessions with the same topic across the two conferences.
