Young Researchers Day

During the Congress, a day of young researchers will be held in which postgraduate and postdoctoral students will present their research in oral format. A jury will select the three best papers presented in this Conference, and prizes will be awarded at the closing ceremony of the Congress.

Applicants must follow the instructions for submission of summaries for the Alamcta Congress 2019.

The scientific committee will select the papers that will be presented in oral format at the Conference and the result will be communicated to the researchers. The participant will register via online to the Conference of young researchers on the official page of the Alamcta Congress. All participants are required to attach an updated curriculum vitae in .pdf and a letter of recommendation.

This material will be evaluated by the scientific committee that will select works by thematic axis for the oral presentation.
