There will be an open book exhibition. We encourage you to bring copies of your or your close colleagues' latest publications. The book exhibition takes place near the registration desk on the third floor. Don't be modest and don't hesitate to bring your publications with you! The book exhibition will give us all a good possibility to learn more about current developments in the field.
