Academic part

The most important part of the congress is undoubtedly the academic part, its scientific programme. The protagonists of this programme are the participants, who are encouraged to actively participate by presenting their projects and theses in this space. Even if you are at bachelor's or master's level and have not had the opportunity to participate in projects, it is a good way to train your presentation skills. If you are at a higher academic graduate level like PhD or postdoc, it is a good idea to present a workshop that can help younger participants. This continuous exchange of information between different academic levels is crucial to generate a mutual learning environment in a friendly atmosphere.

The following is a description of the different elements that make up the scientific programme of the congress, which are present in each edition.

Oral Presentations

A very effective way to present your project, work or thesis. At this congress, presentations occupy a large part of the scientific programme. Depending on the topics the participants will talk about, they will be divided into thematic blocks. Presentations last 10 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions.

Poster presentations

If, on the other hand, you want to present your work to the other participants in a more dynamic way, the poster is a good option. Depending on the number of posters registered, there will be one or two poster sessions where participants can come, see the posters and ask their authors about the project, doubts and questions.



If you want to deepen your work, talk about a hot topic in science or create a space for dialogue to help other participants with your skills, organising a workshop is definitely the way to go. Workshops at this congress will be held in parallel sessions where participants can choose between two workshop options in each session. Each session lasts about 45 min-1h. 

Debate sessions

These sessions were created as a space where, as the name itself indicates, the participants can discuss previously proposed topics. This helps to improve debating skills and to get to know different opinions on current science topics and their relationship with society.

Keynote lecturers

Apart from the active participation of students, professors and researchers from the host city's universities are invited to give a lecture or workshop at each edition. It is also a way to get to know examples of research being carried out. A space is reserved in the programme for them.
