To accommodate individual levels of expertise of the participants for every scientific topic of the Student Day two parallel sesions are organized:

  •   • Session A "Observables and Concepts" will give an introduction to the basic observables and concepts of the subject and will include an overview of the most important results.
  •   • Session B "Recent Developments" will give a more detailed overview about recent developments on the subject and aimed for students who are already familiar with the general observables and concepts.
Details can be found in the Student Day agenda.
