Each abstract in the beginning of the extended abstract and also for the registration form should have a title, be between 200 and 300 words and be followed by 3 keywords, separated by semicolons. The abstracts should present, minimally, the purpose of the communication, the object or subject to be worked and the theoretical framework involved.

The papers will be grouped into different sessions and should be presented in Portuguese, Spanish or English. Each presentation has a time limit of 15 minutes, and presenters are expected to deliver the basic ideas of the extended abstract. Following a group of papers, each session will have a round of questions up to 30 minutes.

Presentation video: The presentations will be made this year with pre-recorded videos by the authors. After the presentation time there will be half an hour for LIVE debate with the authors.

Video must be recorded on any platform (Google Meet, Streamyard, Zoom, among others) and stored in a sharing application. Keep an eye on the resolution so your presentation is readable while the file size doesn't get huge.
The LINK (only the link!) from Google Drive, Dropbox or similar sharing websites must be informed by the author on the official website of Cyberjornadas, directly in the reserved area of the participating author. Due to good experience, we recommend using Google Drive. Foreign authors are allowed to send the link direct by e-mail to avoid difficulties. The deadline to inform the video link is Sunday, September 4th.

Video presentation time limit: 15 minutes.

Registration fee payment: Please, contact us by email to learn how to make the payment.
