Instructions

The deadline for sending communications is extended until November 12

Any author, or coauthor, registered can sign a maximum of three proposals. These proposals may be prepared in Spanish, English or Portuguese.

All signatory authors must be registered and have paid the corresponding payment. And to receive the certificate, at least one of the authors must answer the possible questions that may be asked by the attendees on the date assigned in the program.

Proposals can be of different types:

  • Oral communications. This will be a video about 10-15 minutes of duration in which the authors will explain their work. In this video, it is not necessary that the authors appear, but it is essential that their voices are heard. They must be videos where a presentation (eg Power Point or Prezzi) appears with the authors' voice commenting on it. You can download here the template proposed by the Scientific Committee.

  • Poster. In this case, it is a PDF with DIN-A4 size where the experience is brief and graphically explained.

  • Symposio. It consists on a video of 50-60 minutes duration in which the coordinator briefly explains the contents of the symposium, followed by 4-5 oral communications on the same subject.
