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. To further promote students’ participation, this year we have included a special offer for Ph.D. students with a reduced fee. Nearly 50% of the talks will be selected from participants' submitted abstracts also besides the main 2018 SIBBM seminar themes.

During the meeting, the prestigious Chiara D’Onofrio award will be assigned to a young scientist chosen among the selected oral communications and the Francesca Martini prize will be awarded to the best Poster.
