Participants at the conference will be as much protagonists as audience, the simple and accessible online conference platform making possible an unprecedented degree of interaction, reflection, discussion and exchange. Sitting back and simply listening and enjoying is also OK. Outstanding participant contributions and conversations will be featured in the conference proceedings, subject to previous consent.
