6. Abstracts must not contain subtitles, figures, graphs and / or tables, nor bibliographic references.

7. The minimum size of the abstract will be 500 words and the maximum of 800 words, with each field having the minimum and maximum specific quantity. No field in item 5 will be allowed to be blank, except for the item – Financial Source.

8. It is up to the author who submits the work to choose the session for presenting the work, within one of the major areas covered.

The presentation sessions are divided into themes according to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda proposed by the UN, so the author must choose the session in which the work to be presented fits best (see https: // nacoesunidas .org / pos2015 / agenda2030 / for more information on the SDGs). Then, the author must also select the most relevant sub-area of the work.

9. Besides choosing the major area and the subarea, the submitting author must select the presentation format: Panel or Video-Poster.

Panel: 5-minute video available for viewing at any time during the event, but with a presentation scheduled at a time to be indicated by the organizing committee, followed by a live discussion of 5 minutes between the presenter, moderator of the room and other participants. Each video will also be able to receive written comments throughout the event.

Video-Poster: 5-minute video available for viewing at any time during the event, and with interaction with event participants via chat and written comments.

Requests for presentations sent to the PANEL will be analyzed and may be nominated for presentation in the Video-Poster format, at the discretion of the Scientific Committee of the event.

Videos will only be accepted after approval of the abstracts submitted by the authors. The Organizing Committee, when sending the acceptance of the abstract, will communicate all the details for the submission of the videos, including: format, time, deadline for submission, submission method, etc.

10. There is no standard template for abstracts. The submission must be made in the system according to the instructions and fields presented in item 5.

11. Papers must be submitted through the online registration system, according to the information and rules presented in the previous items.

12. The final date for submission of abstracts is May 18, 2021. The date for submission of abstracts will not be extended, considering the previous period previously established.
