We are very excited about the impressive roster of distinguished speakers who already agreed to contribute. To enable intense exchange between all participants, we have set aside additional time for more than 20 talks and 24 flash talks that will be selected from the submitted abstracts.

Mike Boxem, John T.  Connelly, Pierre Coulombe, Dennis Discher, John Eriksson, Sandrine Etienne-Manneville, Roland Foisner, Kathleen Green, Harald Herrmann, Elly Hol, Sarah Köster, Michel Labouesse, Jan Lammerding, Ohad Medalia, Isabelle Migeotte, Nicolas Plachta, Arnoud Sonnenberg, Didier Stainier, Sergei Strelkov
