The purpose of an oral presentation is to introduce the audience to the most important and interesting points in your research. All oral communications will be programmed according to the conference areas. Each presenter will be provided with a 15-minute presentation time slot. This time could be adjusted depending on the number of final presentations.
The scientific committee will provide a chair for the sessions from the presenters. Although Spanish presentations will be accepted at the conference, the abstract submissions should be in English.
All proposals must include the following structure:
Max. 300 words (authors, aﬃliation and references not included).
The Scientific Committee will evaluate the oral communications and all authors will receive confirmation of acceptance or rejection. Abstract submissions are only being accepted electronically to www.iapesgw2019.com
Poster presentations provide a unique opportunity to give everyone a general idea of the sort of research that you are doing and an occasion to discuss in detail with a smaller number of people whose interests are close to your own. However, extreme care is needed in their preparation.
In order to assess the poster proposal, all authors must upload an abstract following this structure:
Max. 300 words (authors, affiliation and references not included)
