It´s allowed to present in English, though it is not required.

Tapes for sticking the posters on the stands will be available.

The only poster session will be on 11/07, during 1:30, from 10:30 am to 12pm.



This session will consist of 2 stages: 1 minute in plenary, followed by presentation on your own laptop for interested participants. 

It will be on 11/06 from 2pm to 4pm. All accepted papers will be presented in plenary first. And after this presentation, they will have the remaining time for the laptop presentation. If there is a great demand for works, we will anticipate the beginning of the session.

A bell can help mark the end of the 1 minute!

All presenters will receive a presentation certificate and the attendees a certificate of participation.



As in previous editions, after the event, the authors will be invited to submit an extended version for an article, but this time, for a journal (which will be further analyzed by 2 or 3 reviewers). Therefore, it is not necessary to submit a new corrected version of the article. 

Reviewers comments will be considered for the preparation of the presentation for ELC 2014, and for writing the extended version.
