Dear speakers, dear friends of AIFREF,
we hereby inform you that we have received contributions well beyond the indicated deadline. For this reason and also because we could not initiate referral requests during the summer holidays, the process will be started shortly.
As in all Conferences, publication requires a curation time of 12/18 months, in our case, we also have the opportunity to select the best contributions to submit them for refereeing in some journals in band A with which we are formalising calls, and for this reason we have not yet announced anything on the website. Beyond this selection and valuable opportunity for career purposes, we will in any case publish the contributions in an ANVUR-listed volume.
Contributions that need to be revised in terms of structure, language revision, etc., as is the case with any scientific publication, will have to be improved for publication, but the line of the AIFREF Congress Board2022 is to favour publication by also accompanying the improvement process.
Greetings and best wishes for a Happy Academic Year to all

AIFREF Scientific Committee
