YOCOCU 2020 will be realize using the following innovative formula:

1) All those who are interested in participating must send the abstract by 30th September2020. Those who have already sent their abstract or video by the before deadlines do not have to do anything. Those to whom the abstract will be accepted (notification after 30th September2020) must submit their contribution in the form of a video presentation of a maximum duration of 5 minutes (deadline: 14 October 2020), in which they will present the title, themselves, the affiliation and the research carried out. All the videos will be available in the conference website, subdivided by topic.

2) The conference will be developed over two days organized in this way: lectures followed by a “walk the talk” space on a specific conference topic. Those who have submitted abstracts will be asked to participate in the discussion but not to present their work.

3) the participants have the opportunity to publish on the YOCOCU 2020, if the contribute will fulfill the requirements and the high standards of the YOCOCU 2020 Journals (link).
