Good morning, and thank you for posting this information.

Our company, Recharge Development Corporation, plans to participate in the ISMAR 10 Symposium.

Is there any chance for me to be involved in some aspect of the conference planning?

Thank you,

Dear Sir:
The Scientific Commitee was defined in 2015 July, but we´ll search any formula for those technicians who have expressed their willingness in helping!
Thanks for your kindness.
