Meeting Key Questions

Meeting Format

The workshop includes talks, plenary discussion sessions and group discussions. For logistic reasons, the number of participants is limited to 80. In addition to the talks by the invited speakers (see below), there are open presentation slots for junior researchers (current PhD students and early-career postdocs) selected by the SOC. Abstract submission for junior researchers is now closed.


The conference and accommodation will be located in the Abbazia di Spineto, an 11th century abbey and surrounding buildings. The 2000 acre estate is located near Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO world heritage site. Lunches and dinner will be provided as part of the cost.
