    Accepted abstracts, both for oral communications and for posters, will be considered for the publication in the proceedings of the event, which will consist in a Collection in PeerJ Preprints.
    No Copyright form or permission is required for the publication of abstracts, since the proceedings wonÕt be an official publication.


    A post workshop Special Issue in an International Journal with IF will be published with best full papers from presentations, both oral and poster, given at the Workshop. A special Call for papers will be launched shortly after the workshop (planned time presently is early November 2017). A publication fee could be requested for publication of accepted papers because of Open Access policies adopted by many journals.


    The Workshop and all satellite events will be held at the local research area of the Italian National Research Council, via Ugo La Malfa 153, 90146, Palermo.
