114 / 150

This convention will be an informative one where we will have the chance to learn from each other in a friendly atmosphere: "hands on", lectures, demonstrations, exhibits, theory, and mutual assistance.

The WTS will arrange a special display of their optics and possibly show the blc 20 + 40 x 200 ready for use.

The congress languages are English and German without translation. The discussion remarks will be translated simultaneously.

We welcome suggestions and ideas for the meeting and the program!

If there is an interest, we will organize a Ladies Program for Saturday.
