Preliminary program of next meeting 2022:

Long talks, short talks, industry symposium, and 3 poster sessions (all posters, portrait style A0 size, will be presented at the same time, no change during the meeting necessary). Due to the current situation, the program might change significantly even close to the start of the conference.
