Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions

Nothing can replace face-to-face interaction and communication. During our professional lives, we have hugely valued the unique educational experiences that conferences have offered us over the years. Many of our best memories, from when we were students until we became experienced professionals, are related to the conferences we have attended with friends and colleagues from all over the world. 
We are determined to deliver a unique in-person experience at the meeting in Amsterdam this year while we will also benefit from the best online education has to offer. Find below information about the conference and answers to the most frequently asked questions.
