“OIST Mini Symposia”
A Mini Symposium is the standard conference format, with invited talks, possibly some contributed talks, however with less speakers and no non-speaking participants. The Mini Symposium addresses a specific scientific theme or topic, focusing on current trends and recent findings in the field of interest. Unlike OIST Funded Workshops, talks at the Mini Symposia can be highly technical and specific for the field of research of the organizing unit. However, all invited and/or contributed talks have to be open to all OIST research members.
