The meeting will take place in the Siegbahn hall at the Ångstrom Laboratory (see map) located in the Ångström-ITC Campus area. 

Poster presentations: The boards for the poster presentations are 140 cm high and 100 cm wide, which will fit an A0 sized poster (118.9 cm by 84.1 cm) in portrait orientation (long side vertical). All materials necessary to hang the posters will be provided by the organisers.

The preliminary time schedule (version 10 June 2018) is as follows.  Note:
45-minute presentations include                  10 minutes for discussion.
30-minute presentations include            5- 10 minutes for discussion.
20-minute presentations include                   5 minutes for discussion.
