Thursday 26 September, 14:00 – 16:00 (simultaneous translation for official delegates)

Official representatives from FIP member organisations and observer organisations will be admitted to the council meetings (one delegate per organisation). Each representative will be asked to submit written proof, when registering, that he or she has been officially appointed to represent his or her organisation.

The council meetings will also be attended by the FIP Bureau members and FIP section representatives. FIP individual members are welcome to attend most of the council meetings, but only as a silent audience. They may be asked to show their FIP membership card at the entrance of the room.

First-timers Meeting

At this meeting, first-timers will be able to meet not only experienced congress participants but also representatives from FIP sections and special interest groups. This is a great opportunity for new attendees to exchange ideas, meet interesting people and get involved in FIP’s global network and the vast array of projects that FIP offers to all its members.

Poster Sessions
