Call for Papers

Encuentros Barcelona 2016 will hold a poster session and a Pecha Kucha session to offer a space for participants to show their research projects, work and/or entrepreneurial activities. The authors whose abstracts focus on the premise of the Conference, “Knowledge for social equity”, will be considered to be awarded for the best poster or best Pecha Kucha.

These presentations will be included in a book (Actas de Encuentros Barcelona 2016 / Proceedings of Encuentros Barcelona 2016) that will consist of the abstracts accepted by the organizing committee.

The application process will be open until September 25th of 2016 at 23:59 (UTC/GMT +1).
