We welcome students, researchers, and clinicians representing a broad spectrum of competencies and interests. Register early as we need to make reservation for coffee and lunch during the day. The day will be ended with a dinner party (6pm – 10pm) in close vicinity to the University.

We hope to see you at beautiful Stockholm University for what is certain to be an exciting and productive symposium and nice dinner party!
