Video podcasts

While eagerly waiting for the Meeting to start we left here, with the help from the University of Porto TVU, a series of podcasts about the meeting.

Here you will find interviews with the presidents of the organizing societies (AMS, EMS and SPM) and also with some of the speakers.

Note that some of the videos are available in Portuguese while most of them are in English. We hope you enjoy them.

Looking forward to seeing you in Porto.
