The symposium has been postponed and will be now held from November 7-11, 2022, at the same venue. The symposium conveners and organizers have taken this decision in the sincere hope that the COVID-19 situation around the globe will have markedly improved by the late autumn of 2022. We do believe that the new dates will allow people from as many countries as possible to travel to Lisbon, Portugal, to meet together at this event.
