Green Vision

The organizers of WBC 2016 have made it their mission to reduce the environmental impact of the Congress. As such, the Final Program and Book of Abstracts will be available for downloading onto your electronic devices prior to the Congress (end of April).

If you still think that you need a printed copy, please print and bring your own. A pocket guide (program overview with room numbers) will be included in the registration materials.
