Panels, the workshop and the laboratory will be organised offline/locally, while keynotes and book presentations will be hybrid (addressing a local audience and broadcasted online).

For the health and safety of all, we recommend vaccination against COVID-19. Nevertheless, from May 1, it will no longer be necessary to provide a vaccination certificate in public or private places in Italy (except in hospitals and RSAs). To enter Italy, however, it will probably still be necessary to present a vaccination certificate, recovery, or a negative COVID-19 test (rapid or molecular) at the airport.

The following link provides information on the entry requirements into Italy from your home country:

The following is a link to a document that contains guidelines for recovering from the state of emergency caused by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic that was adopted by the University of Bologna on April 1, 2022 (which will soon be updated to reflect the new rules already effective from May 1st):

However, we advise you to check this page again, as well as all the documents, around May 2022, as these guidelines may change closer to the conference due to public policy revisions.
