1After lunch the invited sessions, oral and mini-oral presentations started and yet again the rooms were packed. A lot of interesting topics were discussed and plenty of questions were being asked so all the great speakers had to be on their toes, which led to very good discussions.

In the amazing lecture room High Live 1 the Bengt Saltin tribute symposium has held to honor Bengt Saltin who very sadly past away last year. We had speakers who talked very nicely about Bengt Saltin as a person and also about some of his admirable researches.
