The ESB2023 welcomes the submission of symposia proposals. The goal of these symposia is to provide a forum for focused discussions on new and emerging topics or innovative applications of established approaches. A symposium may revolve around a specific theme or it may expose the work done by societies or international consortia.
Please note that proposals that are of interest for a larger audience and that have not been selected for a symposium, may be merged into the scientific program as a topic of a regular session.
The deadline for submission of the proposals for symposia is December 15th, 2022. Proposals must be submitted using ESB2023 template.
Please complete all details and send the proposal to email@example.com.
Applicants will be informed about the acceptance or rejection in January 2023.

The allocated presentation time, including Q&A, is 30 min for the keynote speaker and 15 min for contributed papers. These durations may be subjected to slight adaptations to fit the final program.
