    ESO Observatories are high level sessions organised during major international congresses with the aim of providing the audience with updated and unbiased information on a given topic. An ESO Observatory lasts about 1 hour and half and
    concentrates on a forecast given by a panel of experts of what is expected to happen in their own field in the coming 12 months. The Panel includes distinguished clinicians and scientists and a patient advocate.

    The forecast by each panelist is given in the form of a concise, take-home messages with a 7 minute presentation followed by 3 minutes of discussion. The forecast will be discussed by the panel.
