What's happening at the symposium?

The event focuses on research, enterprise and knowledge transfer and will comprise:


Present your research to symposium attendees

Participants are invited to submit papers and/or posters on their research. The papers will be classified and presented through different tracks. This is not a peer reviewed conference – the idea here is to give participants the opportunity to discuss their research before an unfamiliar audience. A poster session will allow participants to interact with different researchers on their displayed research topics.
