The aim of EMPG is to provide a unique forum for researchers from a range of perspectives who are interested in all aspects of Mathematical Psychology.
The meeting is organized by Luigi Lombardi with support by Marco D’Alessandro, Francesca Freuli and the Communication and Events Office team.

Set amid hills and vineyards, Rovereto is in the center of Valle dell’Adige, along the main road linking Trento and Verona.
We advise you to explore the city on foot, the streets of the city center are like a journey through different time periods:
Along the city streets, you can see the most important and prestigious Eighteenth century palazzi, from Accademia degli Agiati, to Teatro Zandonai, to the city library in palazzo Annona.
Many illustrous guests have visited the city. Perhaps the most famous is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who held his first concert in Italy in the church of San Marco.
In Rovereto you can visit museums of art, history and science such as Mart, Depero’s House of Futurist Art, the Italian War Museum and the City Museum Foundation.
Rovereto is also a City of Peace, as evidenced by the large memorial bell Campana dei Caduti. Cast using bronze of the cannons of the nations that took part in WWI, each evening its 100 tolls spread a universal message of peace.
Map of Rovereto with the main places of interest for EMPG 2020 attendees is available.
