Each workshop will have a limited number o attendees. Participants will be accepted to the workshops in order of their registration. After the maximum number of registrations for a workshop has been reached, the workshop will be removed from the registration form.

Specific registration for each workshop is mandatory for both pre-congress and in-congress workshops. A certificate of attendence will be offered to the participants of each workshop. Be aware that you can participate to only one pre-congress workshop, as all will take place at the same time, the day before the official opening of the congress. These workshops will take between 6 and 8 hours.

In-congress workshops are divided into four groups. All workshops in each group will take place at the same time and thus you can only register to one of them. However, you can choose to participate to multiple workshops from different groups. These workshops will take between 2 and 4 hours.

Round tables will be accessible to all participants, with no additional registration required.
