This meeting aims to stimulate a dialogue amongst researchers from different
domains so as to take on a multidisciplinary approach to themes such as identity,
discrimination, multiculturalism, disability, physical and mental health, among others. It
is still our aim to make this a forum for sharing best practices and stimulating new ideas.
During the two conference days there will be plenary and parallel sessions, poster
sessions, think tanks and space for informal discussions. There will also be time and
space for the arts, excellent means for the promotion of inclusion.
We hope this Conference will be enriched by enlightened and interdisciplinary
debates, allowing for the development of critical views and the stimulation of innovative
avenues for research. So that the exchange of ideas may be challenging to all, it is our
wish to bring together young entrepreneurs and specialists and artists of high repute,
from all parts of the world, working on interesting projects. New talents and new ideas
are particularly welcome, a contribution for a better future.
A selection of the best papers will be published after the event.
