9TH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON ENERGY FROM BIOMASS AND WASTE
HOTEL MONACO & GRAND CANAL, VENICE (IT) / 21-23 NOVEMBER 2022

Programme table

The scientific programme of Venice 2022 is structured in 3 parallel tracks.
The presentations are organised in Oral sessions, Workshops and Poster sessions. Oral sessions last 60 min and include 4 presentations (40 min) and a Discussion. Workshops are focused on controversial issues in Waste to Energy; they include few introductory short papers for seeding the debate among participants. Posters will be available electronically, allowing pre-recorded video presentations, download of the individual posters and online discussion with the Authors.
In addition to these traditional sessions, the Symposium includes five plenary Focus Sessions, to be held in the morning and in the afternoon, dedicated to specific themes of high public interest. A moderator, after a state of the art presentation and statement made by 2-3 experts in the field, will guide the discussion among the experts and the audience. The format and the session settings are similar to a "talk show".
