All papers will be peer-reviewed.

Please note that each author can be included in maximum 2 submitted papers and an author can be the presenting author of only one of them (not both).

Instructions for presenting authors

  • the Symposium will be held online via the ZOOM platform

  • download and install ZOOM on your PC prior to the beginning of the Symposium

  • on the day of the Symposium, follow the link that will be provided by e-mail before the beginning of each scientific session

  • make sure you have a PowerPoint presentation (4:3, free template) as you will be asked to share your screen. Time: 10 min for presentation + 5 min for discussion

  • make all possible efforts to have a good/stable Internet connection to avoid sudden interruptions during your presentation

  • to ensure that all presentations will take place according to the scheduled program, you may choose to prepare a video recording of your speech (maximum 10 min) using ZOOM and send it to marco.birolo@unipd.it, within September, 22. The video will be used in case you will experience connection issues the day of your presentation. Alternatively, a co-author of your paper could be ready to replace you in case of connectivity problems. However, the previous two options are not mandatory.
