The symposium will consist of invited lectures, oral and poster presentations. Abstracts presented at the conference will be published in a Book of Abstracts. The invited lectures and a selection of contributed papers will be published as a special issue of Macromolecular Symposia.
Workshop will be organized on Sunday, September 19th, 2010.
The workshop will be divided into two sessions:
1. Morning session 9:00-13:00 (FT-IR Chemical Imaging Workshop)
FTIR Chemical Imaging Workshop
2. Afternoon session 15:00-19:00 (Raman Workshop - Program)
Confocal Raman Spectroscopy
Time attributed to each oral presentation is 15 minutes + 5 min for questions. Presenters will have on disposal a digital projector and a PC running Microsoft PowerPoint. Speakers are kindly asked to prepare Power Point presentations in the format compatible with the Microsoft Office 2003, and to load their file onto presentation PCs at least one session prior to the one in which they will make their presentation. Speakers should be present at least 15 minutes before the beginning of the Session in which they will give their presentation in order to introduce themselves to the Session Chair.
The size of the display area for a poster is 100 cm in width and 90 cm in height. Posters will be on display all the time during the Symposium. Contributors to the Poster Session are kindly asked to be present and available for discussions during the Poster Buffet (Monday 20:00 – 22:00 h).
