Symposia


There will be four parallel symposia on Thursday morning and four parallel symposia on Thursday afternoon, each with a different theme which is related to the overall conference theme.

The steering committee would like to pay special attention to the current worldwide economical and environmental crisis in the Biennial Conference Nantes 2010. Therefore we ask you kindly to use the themes Responsibility, Sustainability and Environment as underlying inspiration for submissions for papers and presentations.
