Friday, 18. July Departure in the early morning
Introductory lectures will be presented in morning sessions (09:00 to 12:30).
In the afternoons (15:00-19:00), selected case studies will be presented. This will include flash presentations of selected posters (5+5 min) by participants. Discussions and demonstration experiments will focus on topics of mitochondrial respiratory physiology in special interest groups.
Fundamental and clinical perspectives will be integrated in these presentations, rather than sequentially arranged and separated. The programme will maintain a large scope for questions, and formal and informal discussions (joint evening sessions). The steep slopes around Schroecken do not provide an opportunity for escape.
Students and participants are encouraged to present posters (no expensive high-tech required) on experimental results (these may be presented in forum sessions) and experimental plans (these may be discussed in small working groups).
The traditional lunch breaks provide good opportunities for informal 'Walks & Talks'. Depending on weather conditions, an entire afternoon and evening will be kept free for an excursion, or for other re-creational acitivities (hiking, rock climbing, canyoning, adventure park).
