Keep the Expert Panel
In keep the expert, the expert is asked to present a new hypothesis that can address an open gap. Two interrogators prepare their questions ahead of time, and then it is open for the crowd to make their own suggestions and help the presenter sharpen their theory and receive suggestions for experiments that should be conducted.
Kill the Expert Panel
By far, the most popular, memorable and informative session at this conference! Ironically, “Kill the Expert” is also the most lively session. How does it work? We ask the experts to address a common simple question about mitochondria research methodology, such as their recommended way to quantify mitophagy or mitochondrial architecture, and we hope to get a simple answer. You will be surprised how difficult this task is, for the moderator. For the risk of being killed by the expert, we have 2 moderators in parallel. Although most experts swear they will never volunteer to step on that stage ever again, they keep on coming back.

Round Table Discussions
Round table discussions will focus on identifying current gaps in knowledge and technology in a field, where each attendee will actively participate and voice their opinion or lead a discussion. Conference attendees will be divided into 15 tables, each focusing on a different topic. Discussion leaders will be appointed a month prior to the conference. Attendees will be assigned to a topic on the first day of the conference, during the check-in at the welcome table.
