Mini-Symposia
Scientific Program > Mini-Symposia

The mini-symposia will have four speakers that possibly include organizer(s). Each symposium will be 90 minutes in length, which includes short introductory remarks by the organizer(s), a 20-minute talk by each speaker, and 5 minutes for questions. We have chosen 22 mini-symposia in total after the reviewing system of submitted proposals by Scientific Committee. The mini-symposia topics are novel, timely, and interesting to a broad range of algal researchers. It covers innovative approaches and analyses. The speakers of mini-symposia represent a good balance between established and new investigators, have equitable representation and reflect international diversity.
