Participants, Communications and Talks



In this Conference , as in previous editions, poster sessions will be avoided and we will plan oral communications for every participant. At the Mathematical Models of Addictive Behaviour, Medicine, & Engineering Conference every participant could discuss his/her work in a short communication (about 15 minutes plus finite additional minutes for questions). Invited conferences of 20 minutes (plus five minutes for questions) are also be programmed. The program in pdf can be downloaded here .
