We welcome proposals for sessions which can be comprised of different forms including dialogues and discussions. Any innovative or new ways of arranging sessions are welcomed. In general the sessions runs for 90 minutes and can have several conveners, however we need one designated primary convener who will also be the main contact person.
The themes of the science sections follow are:
- Environmental protection
