Message from the Organising Committee

Update as of May 2021

Dear All,

We are informing you that, due to the current COVID pandemic and the restrictions imposed by the Italian
Government on face to face events, the Organising Committee has taken the difficult decision to organise
the School as a virtual event to ensure the safety of all attendees. 

The Young Scientist Forum Day will be excluded from the revised agenda and will be organised in the framework of future training schools.
