User Guide to the parallel sessions

Monday Nov 5, 10:00 - 11:45, Promotion Room near the registration desk, in the University Halls

On Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 3 sessions run parallel. We want to help you to make a choice.

The User Guide to the parallel sessions includes 3 30'rounds. Each round consists of
* Informative speeches from the session ambassadors,
* Hearing of the public,
* Participants take a decision, with help of a sophisticated tool 'The Matchmaker'*.

Note that coffee is served from 9:30 to help you to get awake and fully ready for the live presented User Guide to the parallel sessions.
