Types of works that may be presented
A maximum of three abstracts can be submitted for each registration
- Oral presentations provide an opportunity to present research or experiment results.
- The use of PowerPoint is recommended.
- The authors of each paper must deliver the file with the PowerPoint presentation of their work to the Technical Secretariat of the Headquarters of the Conference in order to record it in the computer of the room, verify that it works and have it available at the time of the Intervention. This will save time and avoid setbacks.
- Posters should be no larger than A0 size (portrait), to be stuck to an allocated poster board and presented during allocated poster session/s.
- Delegates will be able to view all posters throughout the duration of the event.
Assessment and acceptance of Works
All abstracts will undergo a review process by at least two reviewers of the scientific committee. The reviewers will follow the assessment criteria of scientific quality, novelty and relevance of the theme.
Before February 28th the Scientific Committee will inform each of the participants if his or her submission has been accepted.
Since there is a limit to the number of oral presentations allowed for submission, the Organizing Committee, after following the suggestion of the Scientific Committee, will indicate the final format – oral communication or poster- for each work to be presented. This will take into account: a) the reviewers’ assessment, b) the consistency of the content of the thematic sessions and c) the distribution of time and space available to the organization.
