Transfers from and to the Conference venue
Transfers will be arranged throughout the day for the participants who want to reach the Conference venue as well as the Social program sites departing from pick-up points close to the chosen Hotels.
The transfers will leave from Via Turati 2 close to the Politeama Theatre and Piazza Verdi 10 close to the Massimo Theatre.
From the Palermo Airport to the city centre
Bus: At 30-minute intervals, the airport buses depart daily between 04:00 - 22:30.
Train: The regional train from the Airport to the Central Station leaves at 30-minute intervals between 05:15 - 00:25 daily.
Car: Take the A29 motorway in the direction of Palermo.
Taxi: Taxis are available at the International Arrivals.
If you wish to reach the Conference Venue directly from the Airport, the fastest way is the train; the stop "Palazzo Reale-Orleans" is 100 meters away from the venue.
The Conference Venue address is Università degli Studi di Palermo - Edificio 19, Viale delle Scienze.
To move from the Conference Venue to the city center there are two bus lines: 104, 118 but we suggest to either pick the Train at "Palazzo Reale-Orleans" station and reach "Stazione Lolli" station or get a taxi since the buses may take several minutes to pass by.
The deadline for the early registration has been extended to July 15, 2023.

Deadline for Submissions:
Mini-symposia proposals for the conference are being sought. They must include the following information:
It is expected that the mini-symposia organized by the leaders in the field will particularly stimulate the event and give it its unique flavor. From an organizational point of view, we envision a mini-symposium to consist of one or more sessions of 6 time slots each (one time slot equals to 20 min. incl. discussions). Mini-symposia with 3 or more sessions may include a keynote lecture having allocated two time slots for the presentation (equals to 40 mins. incl. discussions).
Mini-symposia proposals are to be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2023.
