There will not be any poster session but we offer the possibility of submitting some posters for open discussions during the coffee breaks. The number of posters will be limited to a total of 15. Please specify through the registration process if you so would like to come with a poster. A scientific committee formed by members of the SFERA-II project will decide which posters will be exhibited during the coffee breaks.

Open-air activity

The organisation stuff has prepared an open-air activity on the first day of the 12th DC. We will go together on a nice trip by kayak along the marvellous coast of Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata and we will also have the opportunity to enjoy a snorkel activity in one of its virgin beaches. The only requisite is to be able to swim and we also recommend bringing some sun cream with you.
Please, if you wish to do the activity, apply for it during the registration process so as to confirm your attendance.
