Technical Sessions

The 7IMDC’s Call for Technical Sessions was held from November 2021 to January 2022, and it received an impressive response – the number of proposals received was almost double what the conference could accommodate. The selection process was rigorous, and in the end 110 Technical Sessions were accepted by the 7IMDC’s Executive Committee, organized in 9 thematic tracks.

A list of all Tracks can be found below. For further details on each Technical Session, please log in to the 7IMDC’s Ex Ordo page and navigate to the Programme, where you will find full descriptions of each session, the session Chairs, and the list of speakers with the titles of their presentations. Once the 7IMDC app goes live on or near Sept. 1, registered attendees are encouraged to download it to find the most interactive version of the Conference Programme and where they will be able to create a customized schedule using “My Calendar”. An invite will be sent to every registered attendee to download the app.

A Guidance Document for Speakers and Session Chairs has been prepared and emailed to them separately, but is also available here.
