  This programme is of course subject to change, and we have to wait for the pre-programme sent by each RN/RS
  coordinator to know approximately how many sessions we will have. We currently expect to have approximately 70 to 80
  parallel sessions plus around 20 - 25 semi-plenaries and other special sessions! Once more, a real challenge for the LOC in
  Geneva! Please see the overview of the pre-programme.
