Normative

Submissions

Only the submission of proposals (free oral, audiovisual communications, posters, book presentations) through the computer application of the Congress will be accepted.

Each participant may sign only TWO PROPOSALS for oral communications (either as author or as co-author), in addition to ONE PROPOSAL in any of the other formats admitted to the Congress. In case there are more proposals signed by the same person, the Organization will contact those affected ones and they will be asked to select which one they want to withdraw. In case of no response, the Organization will withdraw the last proposal registered.

After the evaluation on the proposals, the signing authors of all those that are accepted in the Congress will necessarily have to complete thei registration in the Congress before September 23, 2020. Otherwise, these proposals will be eliminated from the final Program.

Basic rules
– AUTHORSHIP

There is a maximum of 6 co-authors for each proposal. However, only one person may be responsible for presenting the work during the Congress, and by default, the Organization grants that role to the person who has registered the proposal. Any changes in this regard must be notified by email to the Congress Organization before September 23, 2020.

In order for all co-authors and co-authors to receive their certificate of participation they must register in the Congress.

If the principal author could not come to defend his work, no one from the Organization or another member of the panel or the public can present his communication. Only a co-author registered in the Congress may submit a work instead of the principal author, as it would be the only person other than the author capable of discussing the results of said work.

The delivery of the certificate of participation in the Congress (whether with panels, oral communications, posters, audiovisuals, workshops or special formats) is subject to the author or co-author submitting their proposal in person, within the  program of the Congress. Virtual presentations will not be accepted in any case, nor presentations read by other people who are not authors or co-authors of these (presentation certificates will not be issued in these cases).

– LANGUAGES

Proposals may be submitted in the official languages of the Congress: Spanish and English.

– EVALUATION

Each work will be evaluated by double blind peer review x by a minimum of two members of the Scientific Committee, and in case of clear disparity in the evaluations, there will be a third blind evaluation carried out by a different member of the mentioned Committee.

– CERTIFICATES

Certificates of contributions will be issued individually only to those who have previously registered for the congress.

References to authorship will not be accepted in the summary, eliminating the proposal and the possibility of resubmitting it if this occurs.

Accepted posters will be displayed during the days of the Congress; However, there will be specific moments in which the authors must remain close to their work in order to explain their research to interested congress participants. These informative times will be delimited by the author of the poster, and will indicate them in a note or card next to their work to inform the participants.
