Encuentros Paris 2012 Conference has opened a multidisciplinary call for oral presentations and/or posters, in order to represent the thematic diversity of our community research areas and their relationship to the Chilean reality. You are invited to propose papers and/or posters for this event. The official language is English, with the possibility of communication in French or Spanish only to be considered in exceptional cases. The participation of leading researchers, including Nobel laureates and National Science Award winners from Chile is expected. At the same time, an ample space for emerging scholars in order to promote innovative ideas and exchange academic experiences will be offered.
Submissions closed: deadline March 31, 2012
AGENDA AND PARTICIPATION
The papers will be organised in three parallel sessions, framed within seven thematic areas which are included in this conference, namely: Natural Sciences, Renewable Energy and the Environment, Health and Life Sciences, Economics, Sociology and Law, Political Science and Urban Studies, Educational Science, Psychology and Communication, Engineering and Information Technology, Interdisciplinary Applied Sciences.
This call for Communications will be held between November 15, 2011 and March 31, 2012. If interested parties wish, they may also participate in the presentation of posters, the two things not being exclusive of one another. A central aspect for the evaluation of the communications to be received will be their relation to an actual or potential applicability in our country, either through good practices and experiences around the area of communication or a future design and/or application to Chilean reality.
Call opening: November 20, 2011
End of submissions: March 31, 2012 (extended!)
