2023 Program

ACA2022 will include ample time for discussion and informal interactions between junior and senior scientists from all over the world, to ensure a lively exchange of ideas.

Each day of the conference features a plenary lecture and parallel sessions and symposia, giving participants access to a range of topics. Each session will include several presentations relating to the session topic with approximately 40% of the topics coming from submitted abstracts. A poster competition introduces an alternative forum for interaction with the wider research community and the social program will include a welcome reception, providing an opportunity for attendees to make and renew acquaintances in a relaxed setting.  

The following list of sessions are tentative and subject to change.
