The meeting is aimed at young researchers: those who are undertaking a final research project for their undergraduate studies, pursuing their graduate studies in order to obtain their Master’s Degree, at the stage of preparing their doctoral thesis or PhD holders in their first 5 years of their academic research career.

After the FORUM, the submissions will be edited and published online in a volume with an ISBN number in accordance with the academic standards for scientific publications.
