Over the first semester, I might be busy for international conference presentations (both in Italy or abroad) or for international project deadlines, therefore, I schedule my office hour under appointment. Over the second semester, instead, I do my office hour at the end of each class and, as such, it is not necessary to schedule an appointment with me.
