Symposia Proposal 

 

Instructions to submit a proposal for Symposia (Read carefully)

A symposium is a unique opportunity to present up-to-date results on a specific topic. It includes several oral communications from different research teams on a specific topic and it is introduced and animated by one or two moderators. We encourage symposia which bring together academics and researchers from different countries or different universities to allow networking. The total duration of a symposium is 90 minutes, including time for questions from the audience. The distribution of time between each presentation is left at the discretion of the moderators of the symposium. All combinations are accepted provided that the total duration is not exceeded.

For symposia we invite you to contact as soon as possible the responsible of the Scientific Committee via this email address: abstract@i3saw.org. Final decision will be taken by the Congress Scientific Committee.
