The members of the Organizing Committee (OC) frequently discuss the scientific program of the workshop, identify interesting topics and possible speakers, and review all submitted abstracts.

In 2020, the Organizing Committee is complemented by two local chairs from USA:
Theodore Ruel, MD - University of California, San Francisco, USA
Ann Petru, MD - UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, California, USA





The members of Scientific Committee assist the Organizing Committee by providing them with suggestions for topics and speakers.
