Symposium structure

The seventeenth edition of the Sardinia Symposium will last 5 days and will include more than 450 presentations selected according to quality by the Programme Committee from over 700 offers of papers received.


The Symposium is structured in 8 parallel tracks, for a total of 84 oral sessions and 41 workshops (see the table below or download the Symposium structure)

Parallel sessions A and B will cover general topics of great interest, which will be examined in details in sessions C, D, E and workshop sessions F and G.
