  *Given the declining trend of Covid-19 cases and the rapid uptake of vaccinations in Italy, we are optimistic about the possibility of holding the conference (partially) in person. However, we understand that many participants might be dealing with travel restrictions or health concerns, and we are currently planning for a hybrid-event. As the situation remains in principle unpredictable, note that we will consider moving the entire conference online if circumstances require it.   Visit our facebook page or website for updates re. the final format/programme.
