It is a pleasure to welcome you all to the 15th ISBR Symposium. Our program committee has worked tirelessly to put together an interesting and exciting scientific programme. Many volunteers have helped us to organise an array of parallel sessions and workshops that cover many of the scientific topics currently under intense discussion in our scientific community. We are also very honoured to have with us an outstanding group of keynote and plenary speakers. We hope that with such a program you will all find plenty of opportunities to hear about the latest scientific developments in this field, to learn new things and to interact with other scientists, widening your network and fostering new collaborations.
We have chosen the beautiful city of Tarragona to host this Symposium for many reasons. With the stunning Mediterranean Sea as the backdrop, the many historical Roman sites and its laid back nature, Tarragona provides a wonderful venue to engage in the Symposium at the Palau Firal and then relax and enjoy its many offerings when the sessions are over.
We warmly welcome you and sincerely hope that you enjoy this Symposium and have a pleasant stay in Tarragona.
