Université Pierre et Marie Curie
XXVth IAP Annual Colloquium

6-10 July 2009, Paris










There are three types of presentations :

  • Invited Review (IR) 45 mn
  • Invited Talk (IT) 30mn
  • Oral contribution (OT) 15mn

All times include questions

We will provide a PC and MAC laptop for the presentations. Participants are requested to bring their presentation on a USB key and load it on the laptop beforehand.  

Posters will be displayed during the entire conference and presented during the poster review on Wednesday 8.
