The Group is now made up of researchers from all five continents and its latest conferences were held in Bangalore (India) and Recife (Brazil). The next meeting should take place in Milan (Italy). Proceedings are released after each colloquium.

The main objective of the Group is to foster and multiply research projects carried out by the members of the Group, by promoting collaborative work and networking so as to enable exchange and progress, in order to provide more relevant results and therefore enable publication in renowned international journals.
