Draft paper submission: in the two months prior to the conference the conveners will be in contact with the Congress organizers and the Chairs to discuss draft versions of their papers/posters.
Regarding the Papers, the Congress organizers are aiming at 20 minutes presentations + 10 minutes for debating.
Language differences will be accommodated as follows: everyone will be allowed to speak in their own language, but an English version of their own contribution is meant to be provided to the Congress organizers and will be projected on a screen during each talk. Debates will be moderated in English.

CIHA plans to refund Speakers with a grant of about 500 € that will be handed at their arrival in Florence.
-The registration fee for Speakers is of 150 €.
It includes congress kit, participation in all the sessions, Opening cocktail and keynote speeches. More information on terms of payment will be given soon.
-The registration fee for young scholars, PhD students and graduated students is of 80 €.
-Travel and accommodation: travel organization will be up to each Speaker, as well as the accommodation option (the CIHA Italia Committee Secretariat will provide soon a list of suggestions). It is expected that candidates are able to seek funding in their own country to cover travel and accommodation expenses.
