Instead of providing you with a conventional lecture, early morning workshops allow for active interaction with all attendees (maximum of 60 seats per workshop). Speakers will present a short introduction to the field exposing the major points of research, and controversy in order to initiate the debate with the audience.

IMPORTANT: Pre-registration is compulsory if you wish to attend the Early Morning Workshop. A fee of EUR 24.20 (21% VAT included) is applied. Only participants registered to the ILC may sign up for the Early Morning Workshop sessions. Places are limited so book your seat now!

The discussion will be co-chaired enabling delegates to gain knowledge from different experts in the field, and EASL encourages the participation of Young Investigators (YI) allowing YI poster presenters to present their data during these workshops.
