Selected themes will be introduced by top specialists with emphasis on questions already recognized but not fully answered yet. Moderators are expected to present introductory talks of the length of about 20 min. and the style according to their own judgement, presenting facts and still open problems relevant to a theme, and they are supposed to moderate the subsequent discussions within the full audience.
