The conference is open to the general public, and will be held in English.

Abstracts, inclusive of research summary and biography, should be limited to one printed page not to exceed 500 words.  All abstracts will be published in an on-line volume on the web sites of COMITES and Consulate.  Selected papers will be invited for an oral presentation.  Because the conference is addressed to a general audience representing multiple disciplines, we recommend limiting oral presentations to topics of broader interest and easy comprehension, and that they do not exceed 10 slides.  For further information please visit the website of the Italian Consulate (www.conshouston.esteri.it).
We look forward to a large participation, and wish to thank everybody in advance for his or her contribution.
