Registration will be made through the e-COST system. Participants will be invited by Cristian Marchioli and the Grant Holder (CISM) through automatic e-mails generated by the system itself. Then recipients will have to accept/decline the invitation: if they accept, then they will need to register in the e-COST system in case.
