Talks will take place in the Sala d’Actes (Lecture Hall) of the Museu Blau.
Each of the plenary speakers will have 60 minutes (45 minutes talk + 15 minutes for discussion), while each regular contribution will have 20 minutes (15 minutes talk + 5 minutes for questions).
However, bear in mind that in accordance with the Society rules: “cutting off a question and answer period can only be done after the moderator has asked for a vote of cloture from the audience. A 2/3 majority of those present is required for cloture. Hence, a speaker may be called to stop for time, but the question and answer period continues as long as there is debate or until halted by cloture”.
