Our Symposia are unique. Today most major scientific meetings have grown into large sprawling affairs where many sessions overlap and delegates are forced to choose between various activities. In contrast, our Symposia are focused, consecutive sessions without overlap. The Symposia are held in an environment where discussion and dialogue between all levels are encouraged.
The ICHS format is one of plenary lectures, workshops, meet-the-expert sessions and poster display. We encourage submission of abstracts for the poster sessions. All accepted abstracts are published in a peer review journal as a supplement.
