Thus, attendants will be able to learn about a new topic, as well as apply the content to their researches and practices. Short courses must have as target audience undergraduate and graduate students and/or professionals.

Short courses are subject to cancellation if there is not a minimum of 10 registered participants or to the analysis of its feasibility of its execution with a smaller group by the event’s organizing committee.

In particular, this year, we welcome short courses that focus on research methods, due to its importance for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as professors and practitioners. We also welcome proposals in other current and challenging themes.
