Participants, Communications and Talks



AT THE JORNADAS OF IMM we have fostered traditionally the oral communications for every participant. This is also our intention at the Mathematical Models in Medicine, Business & Engineering Conference . Invited Conferences of 45 minutes (plus 5 minutes for questions), approximately, are programmed as well as shorter communications (twenty minutes plus five minutes for questions) for the rest of the participants.
