Our 2022 Congresses will be a “Hybrid” meeting. Both FAB and WCB will take place in-person in Basel, Switzerland offering oral presentations and symposiums. As several participants may choose to join virtually, we will also offer a “virtual congress”. This includes live-online sessions during each day of the congresses. Also, all accepted contributions will be made available as full-presentation in a PDF format on our congress website, immediately after the congress.
