About the CNLM Spring Conference

 

Since 1984, the CNLM has hosted an annual scientific conference in the spring to discuss recent advances in the field and launch new collaborations and synergies. The conferences include several themed symposia, short presentations by trainees, panel discussions, and keynote lectures. The conferences are highly renowned for their intellectual atmosphere, use of the 50/50 discussion rule, and the special edited volumes that result from them.
