The Main Track will occur on the second and third days of the conference. Each session may include keynote speakers and/or extended paper presentations selected among the best papers of the Thematic Tracks, after a two phase review process. The authors of the best papers accepted in each of the Thematic Tracks were invited to submit extended versions of their papers to the Main Track, which were subsequently evaluated by the Main Track Program Committee members, to choose the best papers to be presented and discussed in the Main Track with a wider audience.

The Main Track program also includes 4 inspiring keynote addresses by world-wide leading experts in the topics covered by the thematic sessions (please check the Keynotes page).
