As per ESPN Symposium format, during the online registration process you will be asked if interested in taking part into the Scientific Plenary Sessions Discussion Groups (DG); each Discussion Group will be chaired by a WG2 member with the aim to create an opportunity for participants coming from industry, institutions and different geografical areas/competence to mingle together and share their knowledge and experience.

Each discussion group will meet in a specific room, will discuss and prepare two/three questions relevant to the previous Plenary Sessions which will be passed on to the Session Chairman of the session for plenary discussions.

Taking part in a Discussion Group is a great opportunity for all the attendees and especially for Young Researchers to approach and create their scientific network, sharing their knowledge & contributing to plenary session discussion debate.

Participation is free of charge (included in the registration fee) and you will be informed in due time about your destination group at the conference; we kindly ask responsibility when confirming the willingness to take part, as the spread into groups of the attendees will be decided by the Scientific Committee on the basis of interested delegates in order to enrich the discussion.

The organizers would like to stress that participation in DG does not require extensive knowledge and experience. All that members of DG are expected to be willing to get new experience and meet people from other countries and institutions and possibly develop new contacts.

The organizers hope that once you decide to take part in a DG, you will participate in all the 5 scheduled DG in the programme; in order to further motivate the participants, the Scientific Committee, at the end of the Symposium, will award a small gift to each participant that will have taken part to all the 5 scheduled DG. Available seats are limited, don’t miss your chance, but please do not register for the DG if you are not interested, leave place to your more interested colleagues!
