SIMeF is a living and lively association: a number of Associates have built Working Groups focused on certain topics, always under social aims. The present area lists the Working Groups together with their respective information in order to evaluate the potential interest for the other Associates. Adhering is simple for a SIMeF Associate: it is sufficient to send an e-mail to SIMeF Secretariat.
