Scientific Program
      Scientific program will consist of three plenary lectures, 30 invited lectures, 20 invited lectures by young scientists, about 50 oral presentations and estimated 200 posters. The oral presentations will be organized on 9th-11th, July, 2008, and invited lectures and oral presentations will be organized in two parallel sessions.  The poster sessions will be organized on 9th and 10th evening with some beverages and snacks. Selection of abstracts and their mode of presentation will be decided by the scientific committee based on the review results. Some excellent lectures and posters by young scientists will be awarded.
