Oral presentations

Oral presentations will be given in multiple sessions. In order to maximize the number of presentations that each participant could visit, we plan max. 5 sessions taking place in parallel. Each speaker will have a total of 20 min to present his/her work. There will be about 100-120 oral presentations in total. The presentation (PowerPoint format) should be provided to the local organizers at least 30 minutes before the session starts.

Poster presentations

An important percentage of the contributions will be posters (size A0, portrait format), to be presented within the poster sessions (up to 1.5 hours each). The posters should be put on the stands in the morning and removed by the end of the day. We aim to organize an evaluation of the best posters and the announcement of the awards will be given at the closing ceremony. The selection will be made by the International Scientific Committee.

Special sessions and workshops

The program will include special sessions and additional workshops in thematic areas of systems engineering applications for Industrial Biotechnology, data models and AI applications (embedded models, deep learning, multi-scale integration).

Plenary lectures

The plenary lectures would be the first lectures of the day. During each day of the symposium, 1-2 plenary lectures would be given, with a total of 5 plenary lectures planned, covering the main symposium themes. Authors giving plenary lectures would have a total of 45 min for each presentation and discussion. The plenary speakers will be from academia as well as industrial organizations, knowledge, and research institutions.
