Abstract Submission:

Each participant may submit up to two abstracts, which must not exceed 300 words or five keywords, in one of the working languages of the conference (Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian and English).

If your study does not have an empirical basis, the abstract should have the structure of a theoretical study: identifying the theoretical approach or model and linking current and past results.
