EOSAM offers all registered attendees free-of-charge tutorials. These tutorials cover the many topics of the topical meetings and are held on Monday 7 September, 2020 (All day). At the same time, an autumn physics school is planned in parallel. Please note that there are limited seats and registration is binding. You can either choose to take part in the tutorials listed below, or attend the physics school. More information about the school coming up. You can register for either of them in Conftool when making your registration for the whole event (choice between tutorials and physics school). The actual conference program starts on Tuesday morning, 8 September 2020. For more details, check the scientific program.

See below the list of tutorial speakers. More to be added soon.
