ICST Conference

Notice: The following program is only tentative and may still change.

Technical Program

Each paper is assigned a 25 min. slot with 20 min. for the presentation itself and additional 5 min. for Q&A. All speakers are asked to meet with their session chair in the break prior to their presentation and should prepare a short biography of 2-3 lines for a short introduction of the speakers, their background, and their current research interest.
