Abstracts should be submitted by the authors on the XI Congress website, no later than February 13, 2020.
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 March 9, 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 from March 10 to April 15, 2020. 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 May 15, 2020.
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 May 10, using the app that will be made available. 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.
