The meeting will consist of four days of networking and exciting talks from students and faculty members of the PoLS Network. Sessions will be arranged by institutions. There will also be two poster sessions and an "Unconference", consisting of discussions on particular topics.

The social program will include a conference dinner on Tuesday evening. On Wednesday afternoon (July 10), we will offer different activities, such as a guided city tour (1.5 h), a guided bike tour (2 h) and a roof climb on the glass roof of  the famous Olympic stadium  (2-2.5h).
