  • Question: each conference title is a question that refers to a problem.
  • Video: a film for each conference will be published.
  • Written and oral summary: the oral synthesis goes with the written summary. All synthesis will be published at a later date.
  • Drawn synthesis: the drawn synthesis starts being created the second the conference begins. It will be projected live onto a giant screen. It will be used in the end of the conference to make the written and oral summaries.
