LModE-7 - First circular and Call for papers
LModE7: Postponed to 8-10 October 2020
Given the many uncertainties surrounding the spread of Covid-19 and the very recent institutional ban on travel and public meetings to the whole of Italy, the LModE-7 Organising Committee, together with the Rector of the University of Catania, have decided to postpone the conference to October 8-10, 2020.
Our keynote speakers have kindly confirmed their participation on the new dates, and we hope that you will also be able to attend and present the paper which had been accepted for May.
Both the Academic and the Social Programme are expected to follow the same schedule as originally envisaged.
Registration is temporarily suspended. Please check this space after 3 April for details
