How to submit your abstract

Abstracts should be written in English or Italian, and should be restricted to 1000-1500 words, excluding references. The abstract, including graphs and references, should not exceed the two pages in A4 format.
Abstracts should be anonymous and submitted in *.pdf format through EasyChair, through the following link: 

Abstracts will be selected (double blind peer review) for oral or poster presentation, however authors are invited to indicate whether they prefer to present their work in an oral or poster session (the final decision will be made by the organizing committee).

Authors that wish to publish their work in AISV volume that will include a selection of paper presented during the Conference Proceedings (single blind peer review) should submit their paper by May 15th, 2023. Note that being accepted to present during the conference does not guarantee the publication of the work. Further information will be provided at a later stage.


Oral presentations will be allotted 15-20 minutes each, which will be followed by a short Q&A session. PowerPoint (.ppt; .pptx) and Adobe PDF (.pdf) are the accepted presentation formats.

Printed posters must be maximum A0 in size (841mm x 1,189mm) and portrait in orientation. The poster session will be preceded by a poster slam where presenters have 1 minute to advertise their poster.

The conference official languages are English and Italian. Oral and poster presentations can be held in Italian, but must be accompanied by a .ppt/.pptx presentation or a poster in English, so as to ensure as much interaction as possible between participants coming from different countries and speaking different languages.

Printing facilities: In case you need to print your poster in Lecce, you can find a number of options in Via Taranto, at a walking distance from the conference venue (e.g., ​​Copisteria Dello Studente, via Taranto 9).
