The Organizing Committee of PCM2021 and TPTPR2021 Conferences has been continuously monitoring the sanitary evolvement due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the related restrictions in Italy and around the world. Unfortunately, measures against the pandemia did not develop sufficiently fast to allow a safe and fruitful development of the conference in presence in Vicenza.

Accordingly, we decided to run the conference on September 1-3 2021 as an online-only event.

We will take advantage of digital environments in order to get the virtual experience as close as possible to a conference in presence. There will be live sessions with Q&A, on demand video content, breakout rooms, virtual coffee breaks etc.
