Should the scientific reviewer consider the proposal to have exceptional scientific merit, the scientific committee may invite its author or authors to write a short paper, which will be published in addition to the poster in the symposium proceedings ( in this case, additional information about the norms and deadlines will be communicated to the author/authors).


Proposals will be subject to blind peer review.


The poster proposal should be sent to the following email address:


The poster submission should be made individually, by the first author, referring the co-authors if that applies.


The submission is limited to one proposal by author.

The author (s) declare that they accept the open access e-book edition of the Book of Proceedings, available through the University of Minho’s official repository (RepositoriUM). The author(s) may also publish its content, on its own initiative and on any digital platform, 3 months after the date of the digital edition.


The Book of Proceedings will be edited by the organization, in predefined design layouts, together with the normalisation of the graphical arrangement of text and graphics in each poster.


The organization committee will provide for the Poster’s printing, according to pre-defined graphical layout.
