Each proposal must include the following information:
- Proposal type (talk/tutorial)

Confirmed speakers will be offered a free entrance to the conference, including lunch and coffee breaks. Normally we do not refund other expenses, such as travel or accommodation; however we may consider specific cases, in which case a detailed request must be included in the submitted proposal.
Speakers will prepare all the resources required for their presentation(s); slides must be made available to the conference attendees using a suitable licence (e.g. Creative Commons).
Confirmed speakers will register to the conference using the credentials that will be communicated by ITPUG in due course.
Proposals will be evaluated by a technical committee led by Matteo Durighetto (ITPUG, Miriade); the other components of the committee are Marco Maggesi ( Department of Mathematics “Ulisse Dini” University of Florence ) , Gabriele Bartolini (ITPUG, 2ndQuadrant ), Matteo Beccati ( ITPUG ), Denis Gasparin ( ITPUG ).
The committee may request additional information wherever appropriate. All presentations must be prepared according to the guidelines which will be sent to confirmed speakers.
