Much time will also be dedicated to the discussions concerning results of the scientific analyses applied to the study of the sarcophagus. In fact, the technique of its construction is part of a vaster context than other artifacts: a certain environment, a socio-economic prospect, a precise ideology, and a level of progress.

The first convention, held in June, 2013, had the most important scholars of the sector participate, and discussed the principle themes concerning this interesting class of study.
