The submitted proposals for symposia were distributed and evaluated by the topic coordinators. During the constructive discussion of the meeting, the individual symposia were structured into a holistic scientific concept for the MSE 2018.
In the upcoming weeks, the symposia structure and descriptions will be specified and finalized. For this purpose, individual organizers of symposia will be contacted by the corresponding topic coordinators to clarify their symposium subject or to agree on a joint symposium with other proposers. As a consequence, the Call for Abstracts will be distributed in autumn 2017.
