Daily Programme

The sixth edition of the Venice Symposium will last 4 days and will include nearly 300 presentations selected according to quality by the Programme Committee from over 500 offers of papers received.

The Symposium is structured in six parallel tracks, for a total of 48 oral sessions and 6 workshops.
Workshops are primarily addressed to experts and seeded by a selected number of introductory lectures delivered in order to open discussion between participants.

Poster papers will be continuosly accessible in a dedicated hall and discussed in the presence of authors on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday afternoon from 15:40 to 16:10.
