Event organisation

Being organised in COVID 19 times, the event will be held both in presence (Turin, Castello del Valentino) and on web. The event organisation will follow the successful approach already followed for the VCSI1 (held in january 2020) and the VECF1 (held in July 2020). According to this approach:

  • all the authors and /or participants must be registered before the conference (Registration page)

  • the authors can upload one or more abstracts using the "Abstracts upload" page before the deadline;

  • the authors must prepare their presentations as videos (10-15 minutes max; TUTORIAL). The videopresentations must be uploaded BEFORE the conference (using the "Submit presentation" page);

  • all the presentations will be published in the IGF YouTube channel, allowing to all the participants to watch them BEFORE the conference;

  • during the conference, the authors will hold a really short presentation (max 1 minute) to show the core of their works. The conference will be focused on the discussions. An online platform will allow to all the participants (both in presence and on web) to actively participate to the discussions;

  • after the conference, the authors will send the papers to be published in the Procedia Structural Integrity issue (prepared following the word template: Download the ZIP file); the papers upload page is: LINK.

  • Authors of selected presentations will be invited to submit their papers for the special issues that will be published in Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale, Material Design & Processing Communications, Metals and Forces in Mechanics. If the presentation is already submitted to the Procedia Structural Integrity issue, an extended version will be mandatory.
