The already submitted proposals and evaluation results stand as is.
It will be possible to submit new abstracts up to October 20th without any disadvantage compared to the ones that have already been sent and accepted.
Considering the postponement to next year may be reflected, in some cases, if an author needs to update their data or information, it is now possible to have a replacement of an already accepted abstract. Before long you will find the respective instructions on the website.
If an already accepted abstract id replaced it will be subject to evaluation.
Alter previously approved abstracts:
1- Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org soliciting for a deactivation of the abstract sent in the 1st phase. Don’t forget to mention:
Name and e-mail from which you’ve sent the abstract.
Any change, no matter how small, of previously approved abstracts implies the cancelation of the abstract submitted in the 1st call, and the submission of the new one. This new abstract will again be subject to evaluation.
Abstracts should be submitted by the authors on the XI Congress website.
Submissions will be asked to provide the following information:
Abstracts may be submitted in Portuguese, Spanish, English, or French;
Authors can participate in a maximum of three submissions, but can submit no more than two abstracts as first author (i.e., two submissions as single author; one submission as single author and another as first author of a collective proposal; or two submissions as first author of collective proposals).
You will be informed of the results of the abstract evaluation via e-mail on December 3, 2020. The type of submission will become available in your personal area of the website. Possible results are as follows:
It may also occur that reviewers consider a proposal better suited to a different Thematic Area/Section than the one originally submitted to; in this case, the submission will be redirected to the new Thematic Area/Section, in order to be evaluated there.
For authors with accepted presentations/posters, registration payments are open until January 4, 2021. Presentations or posters of authors who have not paid the registration fee until that date cannot be included in the program. If you pay your registration but are unable to attend the congress, we will return the fee, provided the request to do so arrives no later than January 26, 2021.
For poster presentations we encourage the use of digital tools, including software such as PowerPoint. To guarantee optimal presentation conditions and make good use of this scientific communication modality, we ask authors to upload their documents to the congress platform by February 10, 2021. Posters presented during the congress will be included in the proceedings, in the dedicated poster gallery.
You do not need to send us the full paper before the congress.
After the congress, a new call and review phase for the proceedings of the XI Portuguese Congress of Sociology will be opened; at that time, all participants will have the opportunity to submit their final paper. The submission guidelines will be made available on the website in due time.
Subsequently, the conference proceedings will be published in digital format, including individual DOI. Abstract acceptance and presentation at the congress do not guarantee publication in the proceedings. Texts will undergo an evaluation and selection process conducted by the current area/section coordinators together with the new coordinators who, in the meantime, will have been selected through the electoral process for the Thematic Sections that will take place after the congress. The base criteria for the evaluation process will replicate those used by the SOCIOLOGY ON LINE journal.
The area/section coordinators will select their areas’ best papers, which will be included in a special/thematic issue of the SOCIOLOGIA ON LINE journal, if the authors agree.
