Successful organization of the 10th ECPC

The conference is successfully finished. It got a lot of positive feedback from the participants. We had participants and presentations from about twenty countries. There were 4 keynotes, over 50 oral and 11 poster presentations, which did fit in 11 sessions. Two sessions ended with panel discussions. All presentations were of a high quality, and it was difficult to select the best ones - it was something for everybody. The organizers thanked all participants for coming and contributing to the exchange of ideas. The proceedings are available on NIPV and ESPC homepages.
