Academic programme

Logo Icehl19

The academic programme will run from Monday, August 22, to Thursday, August 25, with the official opening starting at 9:30 am on Monday morning and the conference closing around 5:30 pm on Thursday. (Friday is reserved for the excursion, see social programme.)

Each day, the four parallel slots for papers (20 min. + 10 min. discussion) will be accompanied by a thematic workshop (4 overall, see list of workshops), synchronized with the time slots of the main conference.

The conference programme and the book of abstracts will be available here later.
