As part of the programme (click here to download the schedule at a glance), we are pleased to offer an additional day (Sunday, May 27) prior to the start of the formal Congress dedicated to Satellite Symposia sponsored by industry partners on topics of significant interest to our members and delegates.

For this meeting we are delighted to have two Symposia on very different topics.  Both are extremely  interesting and informative. Registration for the Satellite Symposia involves a small ($50.00 USD) additional fee but one registration permits attendance at both Symposia.
