the deadline for the submission of abstracts for oral communications has been extended until next July 15, 2016.
NB! If you plan to apply for CHARME support (travel and daily budget), you must submit your abstract within the above deadline even if it is a poster abstract.
I’m looking forward to meeting you in Rome in October.
All the best. Paolo Romano
