| 2017 | 2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011

The CVM Mini-Symposia are divided into a morning session with 4 speakers and an afternoon session where each speaker discusses research articles with PhD students in the form of a workshop. The morning session is generally open to all researchers of the UNIL, CHUV, EPFL etc.
