Abstracts of Invited Lectures

Invited speakers deliver lecture courses in the form of a series of one or more lectures. Individual lectures take 60 minutes, including questions and discussion. The level at the beginning of each course is adapted to the senior undergraduate students and graduate students, whilst the closing of the series of lectures (the last third or so) is typically at the conference level. The last part contains the most recent research results, comprehensible to the majority of the audience and subject to the discussion among the attending invited speakers, experts and specialists.
