Call for Papers-Result

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the result of our Call for Papers.

The overall quality of submissions was extremely high.

Unfortunately, we had to decline very good proposals. A special category of registration for attendees who will not present papers is now available on our website.

Authors of the selected works should register for the conference as soon as possible in order to validate their participation. Names will appear on the conference programme only after the registration. Please note that the 15th of February is the deadline for benefiting from the reduced rate as ‘early bird’. After this period, fees will automatically increase. By the 1st of April, authors should upload in our platform the complete version of the paper with the following format: up to 10,000 words, including references and 200 words abstract.

Look forward to seeing you in Sao Paulo in May.

Kind regards,

Prof. Osmany Porto de Oliveira
