Accepted abstracts should be presented in the form of an electronic poster (projection in digital format) on the day and at pre-established times, allowing the participants' extensive visitation and discussion with the authors of the paper. The electronic poster modality will be attended by the presenter and the moderator by theme. The preparation of the poster should strictly follow these instructions:

The presentation will consist of a brief report of up to 10 minutes, prepared in Power Point with a maximum of six screens. The content of the poster, in Portuguese, English or Spanish, should contain, basically, the same elements indicated in the summary: Introduction, Objective, Methods, Result, Conclusion and main references. Important: It is recommended that some information be presented in graphic forms, figures and tables, avoiding long texts and facilitating a quick understanding by the reader, which makes the poster more attractive for participants.

We emphasize that presentations with more screens than the established limit will not be accepted 6 (six).

Authors should be in the room 15 minutes before starting the session to save their presentation on electronic equipment in order to optimize the presentations.

At the end of each session, the coordinator will briefly discuss the papers presented.


Oral presentations will last 20 minutes, with 15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for discussions and can be done in Portuguese, English or Spanish. Discussions will take place jointly at the end of the technical session. For this type of presentation, a computer and projector will be available.

Details to be observed at the time of presentation:

The presentation should be made within a maximum of 15 minutes;

Preferably, use "Power Point Presentation", which should be carried on two different USB Flash drives, for security;

Considering the time limit for your presentation, it is suggested that the number of Power Point presentation slides does not exceed 15 (fifteen);

To ensure good visibility, the letter size should equal or exceed 24;

Carefully choose the specific points you intend to highlight for the audience; Do not make a simple reading of your written work. Show only the highlights.
