What language will be used at the conference?
The official language of the conference is English. All conference abstracts should be in English. However, considering that we have had requests for contributions in several different languages during our international conferences, from people who either did not know English well or wanted to promote their language and country, we are open to create sessions in different languages besides English. For this, we must have at least 20 members who speak that language. If you want to have a session in your language, you will have to get involved in gathering participants from that language group. Please contact us for more details.
