At the end of each day, discussion sections will be moderated by Drs. J.A. Hermoso, A. Albert, I. Usón, M. Solá and X. Gomis-Rüth, with the participation of remaining teachers.

(*) Students will be requested to prepare a short introductory presentation (max. 3 PowerPoint slights in pdf format) on their group, current stage of their project, personal motivation and/or their crystallographic problems. At the same time, they should feel free to bring their own data to discuss with the teachers and the rest of students.
