Each day will have a focus topic presented by a keynote talk, 2-3 invited talks and 3 selected talks by experts and early-stage researchers, respectively. In the afternoons 7-8 interdisciplinary groups will work in teams separately. They will discuss formally and informally a problem to be solved with multi-disciplinary approaches. Each group will be led by one of the speakers and will contain participants with different background. The teams will present a summary of their work on the last day. Each participant will get a chance to present his/her work in a poster session to be held in the evenings and nine participants will be selected for a short talk. The jury from speakers will attend the poster presentations and will give a brief summary, feedback and comments for the poster presenters at the end of the session.
Extra out-door programs will facilitate the afternoon team works to provide an informal environment for the interdisciplinary teamworks.
