SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE: The scope of the conference is to promote a multidisciplinary event from which scientific cooperation among Portuguese and foreign researchers, universities and research centers may ensue.

There is also the intention to draw the interest and involvement of members of the civil society and of the military institution in order to enrich the Conference workings.
