    It may also happen that a proposal submitted to a given Thematic Section/Area is considered by the evaluators as being better placed in another ThematicSection/Area, and, consequently, it is sent to it, in order to be evaluated there.

  • 7. What rules are there regarding Poster presentations?

    We encourage the presentation of posters on computer media, using programs such as Powerpoint. To optimize the presentation conditions and make better use of this mode of scientific communication, we ask the authors to upload their documents on the platform of the congress, until May 29, using the application that we will make available for this purpose. The posters effectively presented during the congress will be included in the publication resulting from the congress, in the gallery of posters that will be reserved for them.

  • 8. What should I know about participation in the Congress publications?

    Subsequent to the Congress will be published the communications and posters in electronic support, with registration DOI. The acceptance of the abstract and the presentation of the communication in the Congress does not guarantee the publication. The texts will be subject to a process of evaluation and selection of the responsibility of the current coordinators of the sections / areas in collaboration with the new coordinators who, meanwhile, will be elected in the electoral process for the Thematic Sections that will take place after the Congress. In the evaluation process will be used as basis criteria those used by the journal SOCIOLOGY ON LINE.

  • 9. Special Issue of SOCIOLOGIA ON LINE

    The coordinators of the thematic sections/areas will select the best texts of their areas that will integrate a thematic / special number of the journal SOCIOLOGIA ON LINE, if the authors agree.

  • 10. Cancelation Policy

    If you pay your registration, but for some reason you cannot attend the congress, we will make the return, but only if this request arrives until June 20, 2018.
