Subsequently, the organisation will publish the papers accepted by the Scientific Committee and will communicate to the interested parties the possibility of making a face-to-face oral presentation within the selected area of the Symposium, and/or only a written presentation, with the described presentation rules down below.

Only one communication per author may be submitted.

Papers will be published on the Symposium website and after they are given will be published in the format of a book of minutes/summary dossier. The authors of the texts will receive a copy.

Since the length of the Symposium Minutes may limit the number of papers to be published, the organisation establishes the following as selection criteria until the permitted quota is filled: (1) papers selected by the Scientific Committee to be presented orally in the course of the Symposium; and (2) the date on which they were submitted.
