The scientific program is proposed by a Scientific Program Committee (SPC), in collaboration with the Organizing Committee (OC) with significant input from a Scientific Advisory Board (SAB).

The scientific program includes:

      • 30-minute invited oral presentations,
      • 20-minute contributed oral presentations (decided by the SPC on the basis of abstracts submitted in response to the call for papers) and
      • poster sessions from 16:00 to 18:00 each afternoon from Monday to Thursday.

Since poster sessions are a focal point of the conference, and with the objective of making them as attractive, successful and rewarding as possible, no oral presentations are scheduled in parallel with the poster sessions to allow delegates to follow the full conference program.

Questions concerning the scientific program may be addressed to the SPC Chair, Hitoshi Tanaka (tanaka@spring8.or.jp) or the Scientific Secretariat, Prapaiwan Sunwong (scientific.secretariat@slri.or.th).
