The SIBBM Seminars gather every year up to 200 participants and, since their start in 2004, have become one of the most successful scientific events in Italy. The meeting offers an exciting opportunity for young researchers and Ph.D. students to talk about their work and experiences. Nearly 50% of the talks will be selected from participants’ submitted abstracts.

In addition to the poster prizes, the prestigious Chiara D’Onofrio awards will be assigned, to an established scientist early in his/her career and to a young scientist selected from the oral communications. Also the recently established Francesca Martini prize will be awarded to the best poster presentation.
