All the existing Committees, Forums, Networks and Project Groups will present themselves during the Congress Orientation on Tuesday, 18 July, 2017, in the morning. For those who are not yet part of a committee, this orientation will give them an overview of what each committee is all about and what they have done so far. If there is an interest to join one of the committees a delegate may join the Committee, Network, Forum or Project Group of her or his choice the next day.
