Therefore lectures and sessions will be submitted to this element, both in the view of the essence of the subject and of the time. Independently on scientific problems suggested by the Organising Committee, participants will be asked to prepare their contributions mostly in form of short presentations and posters. Moreover, traditionally there is also a possibility of rapport's presentation from scientific expeditions, conferences and symposiums in form of slides or computer presentations.
