Disseminating knowledge, discussing preliminary or published results, and networking with scientific peers are key purposes of conference attendance on national and international level. Most conferences are hosted by distinguished societies and provide different presentation modalities: Invited Talks, Symposia, Oral Presentations, and Poster Presentations (presented, debated, non-debated). The table below includes only conference contributions as First-and Senior-author listed by societies and years:
