Interdisciplinarity Warning :-)
The cutting-edge science is obviouly at home at this conference. However care should be taken that the presentation may be understandable to an interdisciplinary audience(at least its aim, rationale , major findings and take-home message) , in order to favour interactions and cross-talks. From past experience, taking seriously this constraint actually proved to also help in getting clearer and more profound and accurate, and to get higher impact , even in the specialized audience.
