Thus, participants and presenters are encouraged to register themselves in that platform and become a participant of the initiative there.
Attendance is free and open to everyone, but tickets are required. To present in future seminars, we invite all researchers working on Chile-related topics to send their information to firstname.lastname@example.org in one Word or PDF file, in English, containing an abstract of the presentation and the area, the contact details of the author and time availability. Only abstracts sent three weeks before each seminar will be considered for that specific date. After that, they might be considered for the following events, as the call for presentations is always open and proposed abstracts are expected to be received constantly in order to organize future seminars. The invitation for participating, both as a presenter or as an organizer will also remain open.
Travel grants offered!
Travel grants will be offered to pay part of the cost of travelling for those who are based in cities of the UK different from the one where the seminar is being held. The selection criteria will give priority to the presenters and students of the same area of the seminars. The available budget will be split within the successful applications. To apply, please send one .pdf file (up to two pages) containing the following to email@example.com
- An expression of interest indicating why it is important to participate in the seminar (up to 400 words, not required for speakers)
