Each day will have a topic focus, with the scene being set by several invited talks, and several others selected from participant’s abstracts. In the afternoons, 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. A jury of 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.
