In addition to the onsite conference, this seventh edition includes an option to participate virtually.

The organization committee for the conference will provide a virtual forum on which this modality will take place.

The dates and guidelines for presenting communications and the topics covered will be the same for both modalities. We ask that you please see the Contributions section for more information.

IMPORTANT: The virtual papers will be available on the forum provided during the two days of the conference (November, 2020) until November 30, 2020 for all conference participants (speakers and attendees) to have the opportunity to consult them.
