Hosted by the Giorgio La Pira Library and Research Centre, this program features Keynote Lectures by Roberto Tottoli (University of Naples L’Orientale), Johanna Pink (University of Freiburg), and Fred Donner (University of Chicago), in addition to a variety of panels, performances, receptions, and tours.
FSCIRE (La Pira Library), will offer travel grants up to € 500 to students, PhD students, post-docs, and scholars participating in the conference to cover travel, accommodation and subsistence costs and conference fees. The grants are also accessible to those who would like to attend the meeting as auditors, i.e., without offering a conference paper.

The Programming Committee extends a thanks to all participants for their understanding and flexibility during these uncertain times.
