About the presentation formats

Oral communication: for papers with partial or final results. Abstracts should contain from 200 to 300 words and follow the general standards of academic abstracts, explaining objectives, theoretical bases, methodology and results. The communication sessions will last for 90 minutes, organized in groups of four presenters. For each paper, 15 minutes will be available for oral presentation and 5 minutes for discussion. Computers and multimedia projectors will be available.

Poster: for research in early stages or in progress. Papers with partial or final results can also be presented in this format. Abstracts should contain from 100 to 200 words and follow the general standards of academic abstracts, explaining, at least, objectives and theoretical bases. The following dimensions are recommended: width: 0.90 m and height: 1.20 m. The poster must be legible from a distance of at least 2 meters.

Undergraduate students may submit abstracts for both presentation formats as long as they are in co-authorship with a professor.

On the criteria for paper acceptance

Papers submitted for communications and poster presentations will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • Is the abstract of the paper submitted clear and objective?
  • Is the proposal relevant to the chosen subject area?
  • Does it meet the general standards of academic abstracts (i.e., does it show the minimum standards required for presentation of a communication or poster)?
  • In the case of communications, does the summary provide evidence (explicit or not) that this research has partial or final results?

Other recommendations

We suggest that the presentations be saved in PDF format to avoid format problems resulting from different software versions.

Please avoid presentations that need to be accessed via the Internet (Prezi, for example), as we cannot guarantee access during the event.

To avoid inconvenience, we suggest that presentations be saved in more than one media and/or sent to the participant’s own e-mail address.

About the certificates

Certificates will be sent in electronic format after the closing of the event to those who have effectively presented (in case of author(s) of communications and posters) or signed the attendance list (in case of attendees).
