  • Non-presenting Attendees: 50€.

2) Facilitated workshops with technical platforms

3) Less parallel sessions

4) All registered contributors get one entry as co-author for an Open Access non peer-reviewed technical paper to be published in the SP20 special issue of MDPI Proceedings.

5) Virtual Poster room available

6) A public plenary session chaired by the European Commission in which selected chairs will be invited to pitch an executive summary of their sessions and workshops.

Call for Contributions is still open
