After the presentations we have scheduled Meet & Match where all the persons who have given a presentation will be ready to have further discussions with the audience. This will be organized as follows: we will have high tables where people can stand around and where the speakers are divided in small groups in accordance with their expertise. Furthermore, tables are reserved for the ILO's and also for the RID experts, so they are ready to answer any questions, as well.
