In addition to these ones, there are furthermore two special sections: the conference "Recalling Luther 500 years from the publication of his theses" and the contest "The password's research", relating to tales with a scientific content.
Big protagonists will also be young people who will participate not only as spectators but also as constructors, organizers and speakers of the event, that will strengthen its feature of appointment to analyse and study the present as well as to look to the future with the knowledge's optimism.
