2 risposte a "Call for Papers: The Future of Neuroethics – San Raffaele, Milan – May 15th – 17th, 2019"

  1. Un appunto
    Siccome siamo ancora in Italia e i convegni si disputano quasi sempre in università italiane e quindi sul suolo italiano
    Suggerirei di scrivere anche in lingua italiana e discutere i vari argomenti in lingua italiana

    1. Gentile Professor Mitola,

      Grazie mille per il suo commento. Il convegno è internazionale e per questo si terrà in inglese, essendo la lingua franca per la comunicazione accademica. La SINe propone e sponsorizza tuttavia molte altre iniziative anche in italiano.
