Hi Klaus,

I don't recommend "official" and "unofficial" parts to the symposium but 
rather to plan for a break and an open discussion session (with total of 
3 hours for the symposium). Some people may not return after the break 
but it would still be part of the usual agenda. Anyway, I think we can 
discuss the agenda after the acceptance notifications.

Best,
   Shadi
