Types of Sessions


This type of session is best suited for works about investigations already undertaken or academic papers. The authors will present a summary of their work (purpose, procedures, results or products). The formal oral presentation of the work should be limited to 15 minutes. Presentations will be grouped according to the theme or perspective of these thematic sessions (which can be 60, 75 or 90 minutes) with a question/answer time and group discussion after all presentations. All rooms will be equipped with projectors for presentations in PDF or PPT.


This format is ideal to present preliminary results of ongoing works or for projects that could be displayed in posters/panels. In these sessions (generally about 30 minutes), the authors have the chance to exhibit their work and participate in an informal debate with other assistants. Each poster should include a brief summary and indicate the goals purpose, methodology, and conclusions of the work. Poster dimensions should not exceed 85 cm wide per 110 cm long.


This type of session is the most appropriate for transferring practical skills, activities that require the use of sensory devices, active learning, empirical exemplification, and any other sensory stimulation techniques. These sessions have a duration of approximately 30 minutes. There should be enough time left for the audience to interact properly and ask questions.

Blended Communication

This type of session is ideal for those who cannot attend the conference in person. This option allows the presentation of a 5-minute video which will be screened in the meeting rooms alongside the in-person presentations. These videos will also be shown on the congress’ social networks (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube). See our FAQs to see the requirements for semi-presential communications and about how to send your video.

This option allows you to publish an article in a book or journal of the community without any additional cost.

Virtual Communication

This type of session is ideal for those who cannot attend the conference in person. This option allows the presentation of a 5-minute video which will be shown on the congress’ social networks (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube). See our FAQs to find out how to send your video?

This option DOES NOT include the publication of an article.
