Topical Discussion Meetings

A Topical Discussion Meeting aims at active participation or interaction between the participants. The participants work and discuss on a predefined theme or problem heading towards an outcome or target. The discussion doesn't have to stop when the TDM ends: simply grab a TDM convener for discussion.

A Topical Discussion Meeting is a 1h 15min informal afternoon meeting with NO abstract submissions and NO poster contributions.

TDMs take place in the Maria Theresia College. Where to find it?
