Going to a conference is always an opportunity to establish contacts with other researchers and to grow culturally. Often, from informal conversations fostered by the conferences social program, synergies are generated leading to new ideas and partnerships. Indeed, networking is a fundamental reason for being present at any conference. Moreover, every time we visit a new country, distinct realities are observed and a kind of mild acculturation happens. Experiences gathered from travelling, shape our vision of the world and promotes cultural enrichment. In this context, the CONTROLO 2020 organization will provide several activities to stimulate both cultural and social experiences.
