Master Class


These sessions are led by recognised authorities in their fields. After a presentation about their specialised topic the experts will open the session for discussion, which will be driven by active audience participation.

You are welcome to register for the individual Master Classes through the normal Congress registration process. The number of participants is limited.

The Master Classes take place outside the congress platform, by pre-registration. The access data for the session will be sent to all registered participants a few days in advance.
