The FINAL congress program has been updated and is available as a pdf: July 5 version. Changes since the June 30 version are summarized here. No further updates to the pdf program will be made. The mobile app will be updated to reflect last minute changes whenever possible.

An overview of the program, and a colour map of all congress venues, including accommodation, is available in the ‘schedule-at-a-glance’ here. This is meant to be printed as a single sheet, double-sided, in colour. All attendees will receive a copy in their registration package.
