The conference structure will follow the habitual organisation scheme of most modern academic meetings with plenary sessions, parallel sessions, poster sessions, workshops and roundtables, and social events. Meeting time and rooms for the IGU executive will also be arranged as per their needs. The conference will take place during five principal days of meetings and presentations from August 6th to 10th. The preliminary conference programme will be made available via the Internet in May 2018, while the official programme will be available approximately 1 month before the beginning of the conference.
