o      a short description of the theme of the session

o      key words indicating your session (minimal three)

o      the relevance of this session for the g&g society, or stated differently, why do you organize this session and what do you expect from it

o      the objectives for the audience: what may participants of your session expect to learn from joining this session, or stated differently, why do you think people should participate in this session.
