The main scientific program of WIRM will be plenary symposia, which will be supported by around 28 main talks from world’s top scientists, approximately 24 short talks (selected from submitted abstracts), workshops with oral presentation and open discussion, poster sessions on three evenings, a special lecture, a meet the expert session, satellite symposia and many more. Each of the plenary lectures are allotted 22 minutes followed by 8 minutes of discussion.

«BioLegend Best Workshop Presentation Awards» will be distributed to one best presenter of each workshop. The winners of the cash awards (12x CHF 330.-) will be selected by the chairs right after each workshop and honored at the award ceremony the day after.

As at other Davos meetings, we will reconvene in the evenings for poster sessions with buffet dinner in a relaxed and stimulatory atmosphere giving young researchers the opportunity to meet senior scientists. Poster presenters will be selected from the submitted abstracts.

The size of the poster has to be DIN-format A0 vertical (width 84,1 x height 118,9 cm) or not more than 95 x 120 cm.
Adhesive poster strips will be provided at the registration desk by the organizer.

Poster presenters are requested to display their posters at 10:00 the latest at the day of presentation and to remove them at the end of the session approximately at 23:00 the same evening. In order to increase scientific discussions, a poster walk will take place. Selected chairpersons and poster presenters will meet in front of the first poster of their session in time.
