The symposium aims at bringing together researchers to exchange on current research activities and trends as well as to identify future research needs. The symposium is a unique opportunity to share recent information on field projects development in relation with research activities worldwide.

After each symposium, a publication or a concept note is written as a summary of all discussion and share with all participants to stimulate collaboration and the emergence of new research.
